Athens
Reached Patras after a night's journey. Via Taxi reached Patras bus stand where we booked tickets for Athens. Across coastline, it was a beautiful journey. And It was mathematics all around as P is written as π ; A as @, B as Beta β; it was fun to judge my secondary school knowledgeSpent 3 days in Athens and visited Acropolis, Parthenon, Syntagma Square, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Police station (as my friend lost his wallet and we had to lodge complaint). Europe (Greece, Turkey) with an Asian feeling starts as you sail across Mediterranean as I could see the street vendors culture selling spices etc. across Athens.


Fira
Fira is the main town/capitol of Santorini. Part of the town is sitting on steep cliffs and it is one of the most picturesque spots in all of Greece. Fira has the most restaurants, shops, and hotels and is the center of Santorini’s nightlife. Firostefani is a suburb of Fira, lying between Fira and Imerovigli. It is on the crest of a hill and thus has one of the spots with the best view on the island and especially looking back down to Fira.
Akrotiri
Then afternoon was our journey to Red beach. On the way to Red beach , we saw a local corn stall and my husband started pretending he is a chef and asked to take pictures. Locals were very friendly. We came to location but we were not able to see any beach near us. So we asked a local and he told it is a hike. To get to Red beach is a small hike. Climbing a huge rock and climbing down gets us to beach. We started climbing the rock and mid way , we were fascinated to see. It was a very huge red rock infront of us with a small white patch in the middle and beach was almost invisible. We saw many small moving objects down and confirmed it as beach. As we headed down, we were amazed. This is a red sand beach. There were shacks for rent. We took two and rested. We were totally in very clear water swimming and playing around. Spent almost 2 hours there. Very beautiful beach. It does not seem like a beach until you go near because of huge red rock. After a very satisfying day, we headed to hotel.
Chania
Chania is a modern cosmopolitan city but unlike Athens, which has had periods where it was all but deserted, it has been continuously inhabited since Minoan times.In other words for at least 5000 years people have been living in this city, one civilization following another from Minoan, to Mycenaean, to Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, Turkish all the way up to its present day inhabitants some of whom share the blood of all these groups. Yes, there could be Minoans walking around the streets of Chania. Unlike Athens which lay dormant for centuries and basically began again from scratch in the mid 19th century, Chania has had a flourishing culture and in the 18th century was an international center of commerce(thanks Wikipedia and our local guide ;)). Chania, a town with a sophistication that would allow them to view Athens as somewhat provincial.
