So the picture directly below is jarring, confusing, and hilarious. I had to crop in so you could actually get a glimpse. We were pulling out of a Greek bodega and I stopped the car to get a quick image of this weirdness: a 2-Euro thong-ball machine. I know. Bananas. Anyway, we got off the island via Hellenic Seaways Flying Cat 4 to Thira also known as Santorini. We got a car at Spiradakos Rent-A-Car because we thought it was an omen from our friend, Elizabeth Spiridakis. (White Lightning) Driving from the port to Oia along the cliffs at night still gives me chills, but the car made it. The omen came true. Images of Fira and Oia will be posted soon.
