Do you ever have that fleeting moment of doubt when you open a travel brochure and see the pictures of those exotic locations with beautiful beaches, an azure sea and an unbelievably blue sky ? That can't possibly be real, can it ?
Well, we found out today that it is, at least here by the Aegean Sea. Crystal clear water so bouyant you can almost fall asleep floating on your back. The boardwalks are there to protect your feet from the hot sand, and sandals are required to get right to the water. The beach was not crowded and this is about as far away as you can get from 'hustle and bustle' - a phrase which is unknown here (except when it comes to driving !).
Away from the beach, the land is hot, and dry. I've read that there is a rainy season here, but the evidence for it is long gone.
