... It's awesome and noisy and threatening and joyful. Our lives are golden. We get to take it all in. Five pizza delivery motos rotate in and out in front of us. Lots of duct tape keeping them running and all together. Just like our spinning globe. Don't know how it all stays together and don't care. As long as it does. Strange encounters of a genuine kind. Sandy. She a lovely young woman running the fruit and health food store a few doors ...
... we were out of change (thus no way to tip him), so we ran across the street to the Avocado Restaurant and ordered their amazing chocolate dessert to go. With our dessert in hand and some change we were rushed off to the port to catch our ferry to Crete. This isn't a typical ferry.

But it was totally worth it. The panoramic views we had the entire way ...
Weather: glorious. Slip, slop, slap.
6.30am arrived at the Island of Crete where we disembarked at Ag. Nikolaos (means Saint Nicholas) where Olive Oil products are paramount. The Cretan diet is known as one of the healthiest diets in the world (1/3 largest).
We did a tour of the Palace of Knossos where the Monoan Civilization thrived in the Bronze age (roughly 3,000 BC) within the Aegean. The palace was ...
