A day on Crete, enjoying great mild weather, some 4,000 year old culture, fruits of the forest, home made wine and our first ever swim in the Mediterranean. Not a bad life. Another city (Heraklion) shut down by protests, this time students against police violence. We teamed up with our kiwi posse and hired a convoy of taxis that did a few of the sights.

... rang. Very sorry but rain is coming so A la carte reservation cancelled. Who knew the restaurant was outdoors. Somewhat disappointed we went down to the dining hall and eventually found a table, again adequate food but nothing special. We took a short walk around the shops in the evening avoiding the live band in the main bar area. This even managed to drown out the neighbouring bar when we went up to our room. It didn't ...
