We spent the morning of our second day in Santorini having the biggest cultural event of our trip: a visit to the Akrotiri archaeological site. The city of Akrotiri was a its zenith in the 17th Century B.C.! That's 19,000 years ago. Nineteen thousand years ago! Yet the level of sophistication of their architecture, engineering, art, and pottery is absolutely astounding.
After this mind-boggling cultural experience, during which we met and made fast friends with some wonderful Norwegians, we took a boat to our own semi-private cove to enjoy some naturism in the Mediterranean sun and sea. Delicious!
