In Mykonos

This is our second visit to the tiny Greek Island of Mykonos. The first time we came here we were not that impressed yet everyone told us it was "the highlight" of the stops we were making. We needed to have someone explain to us why it was the highlight.

We were told it was the starkness of the island that everyone likes. The contrasts between barren land and white washed homes.

Given that we had to see the island again to see if we could "get it." The island is dry, the beaches are tiny, the houses are white with either white or blue trim, the land is barren and bleak. I see the starkness...and the tiny churches and has a quiet beauty, but I'm afraid it is not the highlight of the trip! I'm glad we came back as it does offer some wonderful views of the Aegean Sea.
