Akrotiri: Once buried Minoan Town

Due to the eruption of Thira, this former Minoan town was buried under tons of ash and debris. The resulting eruption carved the island of Santorini into a crescent shaped island and the tidal wave it caused battered Crete.

The cats of Santorini

I love cats as you probably have seen in my other posts. I was so happy with so many friendly strays around Santorini so I bought a bag of cat food and took it along with me and fed cats wherever I went around the island. This cutie here hung out on my balcony where I also fed a lot of them.
