Add it to Santorini

We have had yet another wonderful day.
A day in the life of Santorini.
We spent the morning in shops and funnily enough we spent the afternoon and evening in shops...that is, in between eating.
I drank Ouzo on this day, both straight and with a dash of coke....and liked it.
I ate cod fish and sardines and beloved dolmades at dinner time. 
I smiled at many and got smiles in return. People here are so gracious and willing to chat about anything.
There is poverty, yes. There is probably frustration and concern behind closed doors but all we see are generous welcoming people who are happy we come from Melbourne.
According to those we speak to, Melbourne has the second largest Greek population in the world and so we are family!
I understand we have only experienced just a mere glimpse into the life of Greece, having being on a hold at island for just over 24 hours, but, as mentioned before, the sun shines, the ouzo tastes great and people are happy with our presence and so, what more could we ask for?
