that famous sunset...

Oia.  That's where the entire population of Santorini flocks to just before the sunset, because it is such a spectacular event.  Not only is the town stunningly beautiful, but as the sun sets all the buildings start turning a beautiful orange and pink colour.  The foot paths and cafes are all packed with people trying to get the best view.  And there's probably about 3 proposals per night.  We showed up early to ensure we got a good view.  Like, two hours too early. All I can say is wow the time goes by slowly when you're waiting for the sun to set!   I had a great seat on a ledge (so safe), and I was not squashed by any tourists.   A young guy asked my husband if he could "take a picture" (aka video tape) him and his girlfriend, as he was going to surprise her with a proposal.  She was so shocked, she said yes and it was super cute (that's the couple in the second last photo!).  It was also pretty cool to see the sun and the moon so close to each other!  Anyway, if you find yourself in Santorini, you must see the sunset at least once!  I'm such a sucker for sunsets!
