    Crete - here we come

    ... the interesting parts and the stories. So it was nice to go there but not mind blowing. I think we're all a little jaded from the barrage of cultural sights we've experienced in the last week or so. Probably the best thing was hearing from Lena about day to day life on Crete. How married couples are given houses by their parents, what age they marry, pregnancy out of wedlock is a precious baby and many Cretian brides walk down the aisle in their white dress ...

    ... waters have lost their magic.

    Took a taxi from the port to Thira, the nearest big city. Walked around, got a (overpriced) latte in a cafe on the cliff. Went to the Catholic church and Dominican monastery. Ho hum.

    Waiting for the bus back to the port I made friends with a couple of Californians, a guy and a girl. They were headed to Naxos too. The guy was nice (a software engineering hobbyist) but the girl seemed a bit aloof and gave the impression I was an imposition ...

    ... places in the world that are this old, and you can just walk around them.

    After Knossos, we decided to drive about the island for a bit - with a vague idea of making our way to Agios Nicolas. The scenery is quite spectacular - there are huge mountains, lots of rocks, some parts very arid, some parts very green. We see loads of fruit trees, laden down with fruit, olive trees getting netted for harvest, grapes on the vines and large numbers ...

    ... as though we have no real purpose. We are trying to focus on the many amazing things to see in the last little bit, but thoughts of a return to school, work, and routine are creeping back. We now tell people it was probably just a titch too long, but I am certain that come September 10 or 11, we will be lamenting our return. We miss you all and will see you soon.
