Like the Greece of my dreams….
Mykonos is one of Greece’s 4,000 islands – only 85 sq. km. with 80 km. of shoreline.
A quaint seaside town with a labyrinth of narrow winding streets, 365 churches (1 Catholic), white washed buildings with doors and shutters painted blue with a few red ones thrown in – where 16th century windmills overlook the town and more feta!!!
We had planned to go to the archaeological site of Delos on a nearby island but it was cancelled due to disputing Museum Union workers. Per the letter sent to our room “Despite initial assurances from the Greek Ministry of Tourism that they would be able to open the site of Delos especially for us, they have advised us today that this will no longer be possible. They believe that opening it could cause a union protest, both on the island and further afield, to such an extent that it could affect our guest’s safety and enjoyment.”
So much for that – the same afternoon protesting started and closed the streets in Athens!
