Had a really good stay at Dina's Place. The host George was awesome to deal with and had lots of information about the island. Location was perfect as well. Would recommend Dina's to a friend.

... of them. This keeps them low and close to the ground and prevents wind damage.
We then drove to Fira where the bus dropped us off. We walked through the town. I was very lucky. I found a beautiful large orange hat for sale at one of the thousands of shops.
