CONViVIUM

THE ART OF ITALIAN DINING

SANTORINI

Oh SANTORINI, SANTORINI!

I left the rainy and cold days in Florence (summer is still not arrived there) for a better climate in Greece i must say. 

We just got to our house tonight in the South part of Santorini. The strong winds are blowing, making it very easy to get burned by the strong Greek sun. 

Tomorrow, we will take the car and go through the center part of Santorini where some very good wine is made. In fact, when you get to Santorini you may notice endless fields of grapes. If you know grapes you will be surprised at the way they are grown on the island. They don’t have them in arbors but they are low to the ground in baskets which are actually made up of the stems or stalks of the vines themselves. They don’t water them either since there is very little water on the island. The grapes and the other crops are watered by the dew.

Drinking a bottle of white, looking at the reflection of the moon in the water. Silence surrounding me. 

Nothing happening, but so much to sink in.

Sun is setting behind our house

 

The moon is slowly appearing

    *sigh* Thanks for vicariously taking me back to that tiny, magical island. Another thing about the Megalochori bakery (or any bakery), see if they have ‘Pirnili’ — peer knee LEE — it’s like an open-faced ham & cheese croissant — yummmmmy! XOXOXO
