stone jetties they manage to pack with ...
... picturesque with pretty flowers everywhere, sparkling white buildings with blue shutters and the glorious Aegean all around. If we thought that Rhodes was a warren of dead end streets, it had nothing on Mykonos! Apparently the city had problems with pirates and they designed the layout to be as confusing to invaders as possible. Then once the pirates got lost, the villagers could surround them and fend them off. It works ...
