A Night in Thira

Picture this...

sunny 60 °F

The sun is beginning to set over the Mediterranean. You sit down in a cafe for a glass of wine overlooking the water. You see a rainbow of colors all around: the reds, pinks, oranges, and yellows of the sun, rays of light radiating into the sky, green, blue, and purple clouds dot the sky. The white buildings of Thira shine along the dark backdrop of the mountains.

After the sun has set you walk through the town, adimiring the local art in the shops. You find a restaurant serving fresh seafood and you and your buddy sit down for a meal of calamari, mussels, and shrimp over pasta... and more wine. You find yourself in a dessert specialty shop later on savoring baklava as you listen to conversations being spoken in a dozen other languages around you.

You walk around a bit exploring the area and are invited into a discoteque where you dance the night away. Around 2:30am you and your mate head to your quad-back and ride home under the starry sky, stopping on the side of the road outside the city for some gazing. You go to bed feeling ultimately content.

We know, because WE DID THAT!!!!!!!!!
