Anyway, we headed toward the center of the island to a town called Ano Mera. Nearby is a place called Paleokastro, which is home to a monastery and the remains of an ancient castle. The drive up to Paleokastro was kind of crazy, but the view was nice, and the scenery of the drive was cool.
|Bougainvillea near out hotel entrance. These were all over Santorini too! Really beautiful AND cool because the pink parts, which look like flowers, are actually modified leaves (bracts), surrounding tiny white flower clusters.|
|Wider shot of the entrance|
|The roads of Mykonos.|
|Overlooking Panormos Bay and Ftelia beach|
|Remains of the old castle. The monastery is hidden on the other side of the hill.|
|A panaoramic, just in case :)|
|Here's a cat selling souvenirs|
|And being pet|
|A little church. Part of the nearby Panagia Tourliani monastery, I think.|
|Guarding the restaurant|
|Doing their thing|
|Towards the end of the day, the sun is setting in the opposite direction, |
lighting up this hill and making it very orange.
Tomorrow: a tour of nearby Delos island.
