Red, orange or yellow flowers always stand out here amidst the prevailing blue and white. This was near the King Thira Hotel, where we stayed. The hotel was on the heights above much of the city. Everywhere you looked, it was pretty enough to be a postcard, if it wasn't already on the rack. Each day was a little too hot to be really comfortable, but not so hot as to cause misery. Already, I find it hard to believe I was really there.
