Oia love

We love Oia so much we decided to stay another day. Luckily we can stay in the same apartment I had booked. We're having breakfast at this cafe overlooking the caldera and this is the first photo I can get of the blue domed churches without the hordes of tourists vying for a photo op.

I'm having a really strong greek coffee with my breakfast for the equivalent of $5 AUD. Back home I would be mumbling and grumbling about paying more than $3 for a coffee. Here, wouldn't even bat an eyelid. At least it's a bit cheaper than Denmark where we paid around $8 for a coffee.

Anyway, something else I've noticed here in Santorini? There are heaps of Australians here. That segment they did on Getaway a few weeks ago must have really worked!

  1. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
