Where I stayed
It was 95 degrees last night!!! We cooked here in Crete.
Crete is amazing, we rented a car and have been driving in the crazy city! Its like driving in Calcutta something!! No rules, no lines in the road, lots of honking and tons tons of motor scooters jamming the roads. The biggest challenge being aggressive and safe at the same time-phew. I love it actually- and it was a surprise how naturally it came to me. While we were in the thick of it,...I actually felt like my dad. I bet that's where I get my cool handedness in crazy situations.
Jenni and I went into Iraklion yesterday (city in Crete), got totally lost in the narrow busy congested streets. We called on the San Francisco parking fairy and she delivered us a nice easy parking spot-thank god
Ek-plixi! (means surprise in Greek). Our Greek has been coming along too-yasis means hello, yamas=cheers and calimera= good morning. Soon, when we go to Istanbul, we will have to learn Turkish!
Oh, there was an earthquake yesterday morning! I felt the rumbling and shaking of my window glass. Very cool-not much damage done. Hallie said in the beginning of our trip that natural disasters follow her-suprise...she was right!
We took a 2 hour road trip yesterday to Chania, where we are now
Well, today we laze on the beaches again, then take a road trip tomorrow to the south coast through the mountains.
