Windmills and white-wash

Day 32
Mykonos, Greece

We didn’t think breakfast could get much better than what we had in Istanbul — then we saw the buffet this morning at the Mykonos Grand. Made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, all so delicious that it not only fueled us for our excursion into town, but actually held us until dinner at 7 p.m.

Afterwards, we made our way to Hora, the main port town, to walk the narrow alleyways lined with cafes, clothing boutiques, jewelry shops and art galleries. The morning clouds would soon burn off, creating a blue sky backdrop to the white-washed buildings and their vibrantly colored roofs.

We walked up to the old remaining Mykonos windmills from which there’s a great view of Little Venice, a promenade along the Aegean Sea filled with outdoor cafes and restaurants.

On our way back, we came across what at first looked like several statues of pelicans. Upon closer inspection, we realized that these gigantic beasts were actually alive — and not scared of humans!

We spent the rest of the afternoon reading, lounging around the pool and resting up for our trip tomorrow to Santorini.
