      ... look. As we parked an old man aged 86 came to greet us, he spoke very good English and seemed genuinely pleased to meet us. The cemetery was quite large, it was very noticeable that a good percentage of the graves were for 'Unknown Soldier' very sad. We still had a few hours to kill so we walked around Souda, a run down sort of place with a quay side factory that makes animal feed from grain, it gives off a strange smell, a toasted grainy alcoholic smell, it's ...

      ... a large proportion of this area is housing, the streets are so narrow that people on their balconies could shake hands with the people opposite. The remaining buildings are small shops, at one end it felt a bit rundown, many of the houses were in disrepair. We headed off in Dream Catcher to find the local campsite, we hoped it would be open, but we were disappointed. Close by there was a ...

      The day started with a walk along the beach, we stopped to speak to a lady who was chatting to a younger man. They were both British and were interested in our travels. We passed the tavernas of which a couple were open and at the end of the beach where the waves were reaching the top we cut through to the road.

      ... fallen rocks. Most of the mountain roads don't have any barriers, I'm glad Les is on the edge of the road and I feel much safer in the middle. Everywhere there are nets out under the olive trees to catch the ones that fall off in the wind. The trees that overhang the roads have nets sometimes as much a 3or 4 feet into the road, held down with large rocks. Most nets are black and blend in to the landscape, but occasionally there will ...
