Fishing in Mykonos

I don’t like fishing, I find it very boring and I am not really into the whole ‘killing a fish’ part. HOWEVER, I do envy the relaxed, almost meditative state, people who like fishing get into. There is something about simply waiting for something to happen in a very calm and scenic environment.

Most of Mykonos houses and churches are bicolours. Blue and white only.
