... a monastery, and did have a bit of an olive oil tasting, but did not see olive mills, vineyards, or any wine/raki tasting, nor did we get to Rethymnon. It was unclear if it was a complete schedule change (from our request to change days), or due to the intense rain that we could not get to what was planned. The guide was very good, but lunch in a restaurant was a bit different from what we ...
