My Wednesday

This is the tale of 2 country bumpkins......

trying to be 'cool' in the "Big Smoke" of Iraklion


We ooo'd and aar'd at the architecture

Looked like tourists..taking photos of Lion Square......

and bumping into people as I took photos of the magnificent pods??


slurped gelato before they melted.........
wondered whether we could hitch a lift to Athens.........
designed earrings..


tried not to get run down crossing the road..

had coffee in the Talos Centre.......


The concept of paying ( 2 euros) to park your car still hasn't arrived in Crete...the Greeks prefer to park haphazardly within 2 steps of where they are going...
so we get the car-park to ourselves virtually.......
Most importantly, we laughed and enjoyed ourselves...looking at clothes, shoes and best of all ...people!!!!

Could just do with a bit of your Greek r & r. Looks pretty good. I'm very impressed with your vegetable growing - here we still have too much cold brown soil.

I wish I could visit Crete again soon. It's such a wonderful place. When we visited we went to the acquarium and a quick visit in the town mainly the sea front.
