... take a photo!
Dinner last night was at the same restaurant we're at today, Aroma (not to be confused with Aroma Café in Perth or on campus!) and which I have also had the most enormous piece of chocolate cake served in an ocean of chocolate sauce syrup.
In the photo you can also see the backgammon/chess board that was a joint purchase between Andrew and Bronte. The concentration at the table was fierce ��
... the narrow, windy roads that look like scribble and which there is a sheer drop to one side, it is correct etiquette to wait until the very last possible moment before veering to the far side of the road to allow the oncoming car to pass. I screamed only once. Proud of that.

I don't know what else to write other than that i fell in love with Crete as well as i have fallen in love with the rest of Greece.
I got some pictures as well.
