#14287 Ghost Village

Posted by redape on 02 June 2008 - 05:06 PM

Hi I'm Paul and have a house in Males. My wife and I have just returned to UK after spending 2 months at the house. Whenever we come to Crete we try to see places not visited before. This time we found a deserted village along the coast from Mirtos called 'Kalami'. Can anyone tell me why it is deserted (just like the Marie Celeste!). Also on this trip we walked the Samaria Gorge, never again . Not having walked more than 4 miles at any one time for over 25years we suffered for days after. Still being both in our 60's we feel a little proud that we did it. We have made friends with Susana and Adrian, the people who run the donkey sanctuary in Anatoli, they have no financial help from anyone so if you are passing that way!. Paul

:P My name is Paul AKA 'Red', I am a retired photojournalist specialising in environmental subjects. For years I have been P****d off with UK policies relating to Health, crime and imigration so decided to move (at least part of the year) to this country I love, Crete. I purchased a pile of stones in the village of Males in :blink: 2003. My friend, the late Tony Fennymore, persuaded me to by the house. It was completed 2 years ago and has been my home for part of the year since then. I am 64 and live with my partner Maureen. Tomorrow 16th. I arrive on Crete for a 2 month stay.
