Well, it is another day in paradise!  The last few days being here on the island of Santorini I have come to appreciate another whole way of life...the meaning of the word "siesta" (although Spanish) has been clarified as a necessity for survival here in the Greek islands.  The heat at mid-day is incredible, although the breezes here on Santorini help considerably... it is hot, hot, hot!

I've toured around the island on the air-conditioned bus;gone to one of the beaches (at Perissa) and you'd think you were in Mexico!  I've swum in the Aegean Sea a couple of times...one time off the side of a large sailing ship...walked around the rim of a dormant volcano...and shopped, shopped, shopped!
