Then we took a 2 hour ferry over to Santorini and met up with 30 others for the wedding of a friend from Canada/NYC.
Their ceremony was held at the Captain's House at the northwest side of the Island, overlooking the white-washed cliff houses of Oia.
On our last day, we took a catamaran cruise to the volcano, sulfer hot springs, and beaches around the Island.
When we landed in the Tel Aviv airport at 4am, we were greeted by fans of the local soccer team, who were drumming, waving flags and chanting in the arrivals hall so loud that we could hear them throught the walls in the baggage claim area.
Everyone else went home to northern climates, and we returned to the heat and sun of the middle east. Strange feeling....
