Greece - SYROS Island

We spent just a day on the Syros Island, but I liked his small town.
Sometimes, it has a light touch of Oriental and North Africa (Tunisia...)

The town is small and low, so the width and the height of the ferry is rather impressive when it stops in the port.
By the view from the ferry, the town looks like a pretty toy construction.

I find no song to give a bit of atmosphere to the pics,
so I rewrite the serenade of Manu Chao "Bienvenida a Tijuana" for my Shalala Air Passengers :

Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to the fishing boats
Welcome to the tourist boats
Welcome to the ferry boats
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Eat my seafoods
Eat my earthfoods
Eat my hillfoods
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to my welcome
Welcome to my friendship
Welcome to my affection for you
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros
Welcome to Syros ...

Greece - MYKONOS Island

Mykonos is as famous as Portofino or St Tropez beacause of the presence of JetSetters.

Wikipedia say:
"Mykonos is one of the most cosmopolitan islands in Greece,
having become increasingly popular with mass tourism.
It is known for its diverse and intense nightlife as evidenced by a vast number of bars and nightclubs.
The nightlife of Mykonos is marketed as among the best in Europe.
Mykonos also attracts famous DJs to its renowned clubs and beach bars."

Unfortunably we spent only one day in Mykonos.
We had not enough time to visit most of the Mykonos' beaches.
In the beach where we were, the Electro Techno music lasted all day.
It's not unpleasant. It's funny. It's between the beach and the disco.
I've no pictures about that ambience.
( Anne Marie had the camera but she is not sensitive to the show ... )
I can only make you hear a Techno song...

>> Jean Louis, stay with us !
for this post and the next ones about Greece,
I've selected the softest Beat, Electro Techno, D.J.'s and Dance Flor music that I could find ! <<

Generally for my pictures, I don't want to photograph the landscape only.
The people by there are living part of the landscape and the atmosphere.
Specially Mykonos is nothing without the tourists.
