Greece - Chania

This entry goes between the last one in Czech Rep and the one for Samaria Gorge.. Iit got lost..

From Prague, we took a night flight to Athens.. arriving there at about 1am.. Our connecting flight to Chania was at 6am in the morning, so we tried to sleep as best as we could in the terminal.. whic wasn't very well at all.. but we finally got the flight.. and arrived in Chania.

Chania is a town on the western end of crete, with the sea on one side and snow capped mountains on the other. Very pretty. We were very lucky to have found a hotel in the old Venitian Port area.. in fact our room overlooked the harbou itself.. the lightouse was directly opposite from us..

Most of the time in Chania we spent getting used to the Greek lifestyle, which involved waking up pretty late, having breakfast, walking around for a bit, having lunch.. having a siesta for a few hours.. walking around for a bit, having dinner, sitting roud and chatting for a while, and then sleeping. Very hard stuff.

The old town of Chania was pretty nice, with lots of little olf cafes and bakeries and streets about 1.5m wide. This was the only nice pic I managed to nab in Chania.. the ones I took in the port have mysteriously vanished..
