Hi all. Just when you thought it was over !!!
I found a blog that I had saved but forgot to publish - so here it is.
We set off this morning to visit Kamira and have a look at a friend of Michael and Jan's, Kati-na's, church.
Firstly, we drove up to Mesa Vouno. This road was a very steep, narrow and winding and Mike did a terrific job negotiating the hairpin bends. The views from the top were fantastic but it was very windy and quite cold up there.
We then visited Vourvoulos - Maria's residence- Mike and Jan stayed in a villa at Maria's last week.
We then drove along the bottom road and back up to the top to visit Oia. We had lunch at a restaurant called, the Seagull which was overlooking the Caldera and the views were spectacular.
We walked along through the village and noticed that there was a helicopter hovering overhead and that there was a great commotion along the cliff face. We later learned that there had been a landslide and that a pathway had collapsed taking a donkey and it's rider with it. Sadly, they did not survive the fall.

then returned to the Hotel for a swim in the pool and had a supper of cheese, wine and biscuits at our room while we watched the sun go down - lovely.
