Women of Thera
Most walls in houses were so decorated.
I have this sign on my study wall. Thus traveling to Santorini, originally called Thera, has been high on my bucket list. I blasted through the museum because they close at 3:30. I took lots of photos and will enjoy them when I get home. It was amazing to stand beside the real wall hanging or pithoi, rather than see copies in books or shops. I could touch the large pots on display (until the museum guarded yelled at me). *smile*
When buying my ticket, I had a bit of an argument about the name 'Minoans'. She was adament that the people on this island were not Minoans. I guess everyone tries to claim, interpret and defend their ancient history. I bet she isn't even born on this island. *chuckling* We did agree that Minoans were in Crete. I didn't try to lecture her about Plato's records, albeit he was wrong by a zero.
For all the travelers out there, here are the directions to get to this Internet cafe (only one in town): outside of bus terminal turn left, and then right on next street. Walk past a flower shop and car rental and two restaurants and you
Wonder what is in her hand and what is its use?
will see 'InSpot' a very fine internet and coffee/bar. (see photos) Really good machines and comfy seats. Gamers are plugged in and some yell at their opponents far away. Staff are very helpful. I will frequent this place often. Thank goodness for teckie nerds!!
