Do not miss

There are a few things you should not miss to observe and try in Santorini.

The first is the water. The island doesn't have any springs and the houses have special tanks for water. It was common to see huge cisterns delivering water or houses being supplied.

The island is also famous for its great quality wine. The vines are inland and after an earthquake in the 50's the vineyards were more or less damaged. There are a few wine museums inland all telling to story of the unfriendly climate, the winds, the dry years and lack of water. After the museum tour visitors can try some of the wines. I loved the desert types.

Katsouni is the name of the vegetable-fruit you see below. In the beginning they taste like cucumber and are served in salads. Later when the fruit matures it becomes sweeter and tastes like melon.
