Mykonos_ my greek island

Mykonos was truly a paradise from the grueling travel of every other day field trips.  Great food, friends, and plenty of time in the sun.  Not to mention that it was the most incredible water ever!  With turquoise, cobalt, and deep purple water and the vivid painted domes of churches, white sands, and multitudes of geraniums as large as shrubs in tones of orange, pink, and red, Mykonos was a relaxing colorful experience.
