This morning we set off for a little beach just outside Chania for a few hours of relaxation before a late lunch at Johnny's aunt's house. Lunch was in the village, and again under a beautiful canopy of grape vines that kept you very cool and comfortable. On the menu was an octopus casserole type dish with olives and a slight BBQ flavored sauce, some grilled octopus, ...

There's nothing quite like your taxi driver telling you to get out, walk down this dimly lit road that has nothing on it other than parked cars for the few hundred meters that I can see (in a foreign country I've never been to before), and turn left.
