Nice lunch and us having a shot of Raki.
Took our lives into our own hand by driving up into the mountains. No road rules here at all,. double lines means nothing here, We had lunch at Sfinari - Captain Fidias (the local fisherman) cooked local fish for us all. Even tried goat souvlaki (never again). Continued driving through the mountains and drove through some very poor and isolated towns.

Today we left our villa at 8.00am and drove (2 hours) to Knossos which is ancient Mineon ruins, (2500 BC), We had our own private tour guide for Euro 70 (ripped off) and learnt all about the Mineon era. After another relaxing lunch in Iraklion we walked to the Fort and the Port for coffee. Heading back to Platanias now to our usual destination - the supermarket for more beer and Ouzo (oh, and some food for happy hour). BTW happy hour has now replaced the evening meal.
