We stopped on the way for lunch too at a bakery; for the past few days, lunch has been cheese with pastry or pastry with cheese. A warm, side-plate sized disc of fat with fat. Delicious, cheap at 1-2 euros but not very good for the waistline! Arriving in Kissamou, we did a lap and decided that Chania was much more to our liking and drove back. We ...
