Walk with me through the streets of Lindos

How can you not stop and take like a gazillion pictures when you are visiting a town like Lindos?

The whitewashed homes with blue accents and doors are somewhat iconic then it comes to Greek styled styled homes, so naturally you can find quite a few white buildings on Lindos as well.

It's not just pretty and picturesque but in fact, the white colour helps to cool down the island homes during the summerheat, but I have also read that it was used to prevent the spread of cholera. The whitewash contained limestone, which is a disinfectant, and not many others where in common use during that time.

Should we all pain our houses with limestone? Of just visit Greece more often?
