the view from our room was far from scenic, but was the scene for some kind of all-night partying, motorcycles and general neighborhood mayhem. did not get a lot of sleep in preparation for our 28-hour flight home ordeal. luckily, after a few weeks of re-entry to life in my queendom, the ugliness of that flight home dims and i start looking forward to the next trip to Crete! i think it helps that i so much love being in both places that the joy overcomes any pain in the ass of travel feelings!
and a short distance from the busy-ness of the harbor is an archeological dig in progress, which i so wanted to get down into and explore!!
on a side street close to the hotel we found a nice little taverna, had a last Cretan meal and ouzo. i'll really miss the ouzo-on-ice-with-water-on-the-side!!
and so,dear diary, i will try to do catch up on our adventures of Fantasy Island as i can.
need more sleep.......
