Hawai’i in Santorini

Hawai`i flag, Hotel Kavalari, SantoriniKalispera from Santorini…in real time. 

Arrived in Santorini today.  didn’t realize how long the ferry took:  left at 7:25 this morning and got in shortly after 3 PM.  Stopped twice:  Paros and  Naxos.  It’s kind of an overcast day, as the photos will show.

Hawaiian flag outside my window, Santorini

Upon my arrival to the Hotel Kavalari, the proprietor noted my Hawai’i address, waxed poetic about how beautiful is my home, and immediately upgraded me to a room with a view.  A view of the crater, offshore islands…and the Hawaiian flag he has permanently posted!

It seems Fanos, said proprietor, has a friend with the College of Art at UH.  He spends some time in Honolulu but his favorite place to stay is in Kīhei, Maui and his favorite volcano is Haleakalā.

Small world!

  1. Kihei!? Please invite Fanos to the Big Island to see a REAL volcano. I’d be happy to offer him the ‘ohana rate at Kipuka.
