First day in Santorini

The first full day in Santorini was spent shopping for gifts for all our guests. Although it is traditional for all the lady guests to receive a bonbonierre, we made two decisions:

  • Sugared almonds would get all sticky in the heat
  • Blokes should not be excluded, because they had travelled to Santorini as well.

So we ran around like mad picking up various tacky souvenirs. Unfortunately, this took most of the day, so we headed back to our hotel again.

At the end of the watching the sunset on the previous day, I decided that I wanted to do something a bit interesting. So when we returned to the hotel, I set up my tripod and video camera on the balcony and you used the time-lapse facility to film the sunset. Every 5 seconds or so (it varied due to alcohol consumption and chatting to Heather) I took a single frame shot. The result is that the 2-3 hour sunset completes in about a minute and a half. Maybe these guys will be interested in seeing it...
