Of course, we stayed near Athens for a while. The big news is that we finally managed to stay for almost a week in Santorini.
Santorini is a semi-circular island formed from the rim of a volcano. The volcano destroyed the Minoan civilization (cf. the myth of the Minotaur) at about 1650 BC and may have caused clouds and a massive tidal wave (we heard reports of up to "over 150 feet tall"). The cloud and the wave may be accountable, respectively, for the red waters of the Nile and the destruction of the army of the Pharaoh behind Moses after the Israelites crossed the waters when leaving Egypt.
