... 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 ��
... be fun but as we had to drive on the opposite side of the road, and in a car that is left hand drive, fun is not the first word that springs to mind...! Andrew got into the driver's seat and I pretended to be the navigator but secretly, I closed my eyes a few times as those scribbley roads and the traffic was just mental. ...

The gorge had very little water, a few sections had small pools and it was flowing, but, what was there was very cold as despite the glorious days, it is late winter. Bronte the Brave stripped off and jumped in for a nanosecond :-). Andrew and I politely declined and waited ...

The pace here can only be described as turtle like. Perfect really. I'll describe today to you as an example.
Woke at 8.30 after 10 hours sleep
Breakfast in bed at 9.30; freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee and cereal
Skyped the folks for 30 minutes
Got dressed at 11 and we walked the 1.5km downhill into the village for supplies. ...
I went to Crete in 2011. We lived in an old white house about 20 minutes outside Chania. While there we rented a car and drove all over the island. I saw the most beautiful beach and we had lovely food and company. The smell of thyme and olives that you just get in Greece is also the most amazing smell. 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.
