Travelogue: Santorini 106

From Santorini’s port, the island is reached by riding unguided donkeys to the top of the cliffs. The easier alternative is via cable car, where this photograph was taken.

Wonder who lives here?

Just a beautiful scene from the Mediterranean. The waterfront and cliffs of Santorini are so dramatic—how does one take it all in? This little courtyard has a more intimate view of the blue and white that makes this Greek island so memorable. The lush bougainvillea helps too, even though it’s probably very overgrown. The gate starting to rust, flaking masonry, a crooked sign, wood starting to rot—minor imperfections in the overall scheme of things. Can I come back and visit?
