"Anedosa"


Υou may have noticed yesterday and the day before yesterday something really peculiar: a thick cloud on the west side of the caldera. 
You, the lucky visitors of Santorini, have experienced the local natural phenomenon “anedosa”, which is generated by the temperature difference between the volcano and the island, especially with west winds. It looks like fog or smoke and rises abruptly from the caldera spreading onto the rest of the island and then dissolves.  Because of the lack of rain, “anedosa” is thus considered beneficial for the island, as it provides the necessary humidity to the vines.
