    Crete - here we come

    ... the interesting parts and the stories. So it was nice to go there but not mind blowing. I think we're all a little jaded from the barrage of cultural sights we've experienced in the last week or so. Probably the best thing was hearing from Lena about day to day life on Crete. How married couples are given houses by their parents, what age they marry, pregnancy out of wedlock is a precious baby and many Cretian brides walk down the aisle in their white dress ...

    ... This hotel is much larger and more typical to the U.S. than our previous hotels. We just dropped off our bags and went for another two hour drive to Lasithiti Plateau. Lasithiti Plateau is located inland and at a much higher elevation than Heraklion and is a series of twenty tiny villages. Some of the buildings in the villages still have no roofs from bombings in the World War Two invasion of Crete. The villages are known ...

    July 2, 9:24 AM -- Port of Heraklion, Crete

    I made an executive decision last night after arriving back in my hotel room. The post office on Naxos is closed on weekends. Since I can't bring back any large items in my already-stuffed duffel bag, my only method of getting souvenirs to the States is to package them up and mail them from Naxos. For that I need the post office, and for that I need to be on Naxos on Friday (July 3). The only ferry to Naxos from Heraklion arrives at ...

    Crete: What an amazing island!

    ... loved it. We stayed there for several hours, walking about and seeing the sights. There were lots of people lining up at the banks while we were there too. Queues of locals getting out cash from ATMs while the banks were closed. Lots of shops were asking for cash only purchases too. Not sure how this whole Greek/European Union thing is going to pan out, but I feel very sorry for the people who live here.

    We left Chania in the ...

    ... a coffee (the lady seems to have a rather miserable disposition) and started up the path. Four hours is a lot, but luckily it seemed less intense than Mt Zas (two hours up). After about an hour I came across a pretty girl sitting on a rock. She was on her way down, but not from the summit--from some stop prior. She said she didn't feel like going to the summit since it's a long, dangerous trek and her husband (dang!) is waiting in the Cave of ...
