Hey all!!! first all sorry there are so few pictures i haven't had time to change everything in to internet jpegs. the class has finally started. we had our very first critique today which was good. such a diverse group its great. We are going to meet every day on the second floor of a cafe where there is the least amount of light to disturb us viewing the laptops.
I am still photographing in the bakery. On Saturday i didn't have a very good reception at the bakery and i was pretty sure they were not going to let me keep photographing there. The only people who seemed to be perfectly comfortable with me photographing were a moraccan immigrant and an Albanian. But today when i came back in and brought them more photos i got one of the best welcomes i have ever recieved. Anna, the wife of the owner invited me back to her house this coming thursday where i am sure she is going to cook for me and let me in to her daily life. She is a painter and from what Alex says, a rather good one.
Tomorrow i am having coffee with the Albanian around 7:30 in the afternoon (to them night is not until 10 and dinner doesn't start until between 8-10pm) He said "don't worried, I'm married." I am bringing Andreas, who is a fellow cretan student with me to translate because the wonderful Albanian does not speak any english.
I am starting to pick up the language. ... well the basics at least and i want to start taking Greek lessons when i get back to boston. 
Yesterday i got up with stella and Angela around 5:45 am to watch the sunrise. some of the most beautiful light i have ever seen. Well worth getting up at that time.
ummm... i can't think of anything else at the moment. i have been so busy the past couple of days that have not been able to get to the internet cafe but oh lo and behold all i had in my mailbox was junkmail so i don't feel bad.  the culture is wonderful the people are amazing and i am pretty sure that i am going to have to move here.
as we say here in Crete
