Dancing_Warriors_4.jpg 42.75KB 136 downloadsMy attempt to upload the photo failed. I will try again, but in case it doesn't work, it is a photo of four Cretan men, each holding a rifle, dancing on the body of a dead enemy. It is in the Nomos of Chania, but I have not been able to remember or locate the village it is in since I took the photo in 2000.

it has been quite a while since I posted. Although I do drop in from time to time.
this time I am going to Crete from June 22nd until July 13th. Three weeks of bliss.
We are going to 4 different places Georgioupolis, Agia Galini, Paleochora and Chania. we have never been to Georgioupolis before and looking forward to it. 10 weeks from yesterday. the countdown started. And so
Pam if you still go to Kalives beach in the afternoons let me know. we could call down to see you both.
and if anyone has any interesting suggestions, places or things to do around the places we will be I would be delighted if you would share them.
Very best regards to all

Who is going to be around in September for an Explore Crete Dinner?
I will be here for all of Septmber, so dates aren't important to me.

Hi, Yvonne - having talked to Bob and confirmed our normal house-sitter can come, yes we would like to be there. We'd be looking to stay overnight, preferably in Kritsa itself. Do you know if the Argyro rent rooms have availability for that night? If not, we'd probably stay in Agios Nikolaus. Looking forward to seeing you then.

8 weeks for me to go on my annual holiday to Crete. This will be my 17th year visiting Crete. And, this year we are spending three weeks instead of the usual two weeks.
5 days in Rethymon
9 days in Paleochora
5 days in Chania
God I can feel the heat and taste the raki already.
Hi Pam and Bob, How are you both? do you still visit Kalyves in the afternoons??

After the success of the Explolre Crete dinner in May this year, it was suggested that we do it all again in July!!!
I will be around 2nd-24th. I think Ton said he will be around the 1st week of July, obviously Dinny, Pam & Bob are already on the island & maybe Yannis can join us this time. Wim, what about you?
Ton has suggested that we eat in a village called Yeni Gave, apparently it's famous for spit-roasted meats, suckling pig in particular. Now I had serious problems locating this place on a map! all my Cretan neighbours knew it & were describing where it was, could I find it, no. Eventually I found it on the maps in The Battle for Crete & The Cretan Runner, so....... current maps, again NO. Eventually after many days of research I discovered the village is now called Dros(s)ia & hey I've now found it on several maps!!! It's on the old road from Heraklion to Perama/Rethymon, north west of Anoigia.
Any other takers for July?

Last week we were prowling around an old olive mill and, somewhat unsurprisingly, this weekâ€™s stroll looks as if it is heading for an olive grove. Weâ€™ve covered olives and olive trees before (see Up The Olive Tree) so today I thought weâ€™d take a closer look at what goes on in the olive groves themselves. But first there are a few fruit trees planted along the edge of the grove and, a somewhat unexpected find, an ornamental rose. Although unexpected itâ€™s not totally out of place as I rather suspect that it was planted for its fruit rather than its flowers. The hips can be used for making jams, jellies, tea and are the central ingredient of the Slovakian national drink, cockta. That they have been used here in Crete since time immemorial can be implied by the appearance of them in the frescoes at Knossos which were painted some three and a half thousand years ago.

If you know of an establishment which may invite my skills / input, i'd be duely grateful. Our vision is moving to Crete in sept. 2009 for minimum stay ( renting accomodation ) of 1 year which will hopefully evolve even into decades.
If our tracks have the possibility of meeting then i'd love to meet up with you folks whether it's an afternoon coffee chat or a good sit-down accompanied by a local speciality. I'm hitting the road from Heraklion on my raleigh with tent and an open mind. I'm an optimist with a little realism thrown in. Cheers, Mike
