|Vol. 112: A Fitting Presentation|
The Aegean Sea is renowned throughout the world for its crisp blue sky and azure, gentle waves. Thus, you can imagine my disappointment when, instead of picturesque islands scattered here and there in an ocean of blue, I saw nothing but dull gray clouds every day throughout my trip, only punctuated by the occasional light rain.
When I heard that the first sushi restaurant on Santorini Island
had opened recently, I could hardly wait until suppertime--and
instead went out to the restaurant early.
When I got up early next morning, the weather was clear and sunny
for a change. I immediately went out for a stroll in the vicinity
of the hotel. Completely white buildings, which are unique to this
island, are lined up in tiers with the ocean in the background.
On one white roof by the roadside I spotted an old, crumbling boat;
it was clearly placed there for decoration. The main part of that
particular building was hidden out of sight; the rooftop was the
only part on display.
