... and after much indecision) we decided to just drive back to Chania and I'd bunk with Nick and Lisa in a spare bed in their room. This caused an impromptu dinner put on by Johnny's cousin Evanthia, and her husband Efthisi did the grilling. At least 2 dozen pork chops were grilled, lamb chops, pilafi, salad, and I can't even remember the rest. So much food. So good. And most of the family joined ...
