Arriving in Athens is bittersweet! For as long as I can remember, I have thought about travelling here to "see where it all began." I have always wanted to see the Acropolis and all that Athens has to offer. People talk of how dirty the city is and that it should be a short stop. Well except Brittany, who told me how she loved every bit of it! I …
... enjoyed speaking about their heritage and craftsmanship.
I quickly tired of Plaka's monochrome touristic character and decided to venture out further. This was a big mistake! Given that Athens was a town of maybe 20,000 to 30,000 citizens a hundred years ago prior to the traumatic events of the Treaty of Lausanne described in an earlier entry, Athens was flooded with Turkish-speaking Christians by the tens of thousands in 1923. For a ...
It's actually April 20th today,and my Dad will be here in two hours!!! But, ok, last day in Crete.
Our first stop of the day was this little village called Margarites, which has been known for its ceramics for centuries. Vasso told us that there'd be lots of pottery shops, but I thought that everything would be super expensive and so I would just sadly look at all the pretty things but not be able to buy anything.

I woke up early this morning because of the torrential downpour that I could hear against the wall next to me. I went back to bed, but then woke up to my alarm around 9. It was still raining, but I thought that I could handle it if it lightened up just a bit, so that I could run my errands. Then the cleaning woman came and ...
... ago that they could build such a thing, and perform plays, and be geniuses in math, etc. Yeah I'll add to that. So in grade school, when you learn of the Parthenon, all the teachers preface this accomplishment by saying, "look at what man did, a long long time ago," and they did despite all of this despite this and that. So naturally, we modern people feel all superior because we don't live in a cave and eat with a rock, so we're like ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We have enjoyed our last few days at the Oasis. The pool area is wonderful. Rooms are big compared to others we've been in throughout Greece and Turkey. Rooms are clean, maybe a bit dated and needing some paint, but overall a great place to stay for the value. Breakfast was by far the best we have had! Great variety of hot and cold items, as well as plenty of beverages.
