Re: The church in Crete which can only be visited once a year

Trying again with reduced sized pictures.

The church is in much better shape.

Re: The church in Crete which can only be visited once a year

We have lots of photos, mostly (but not all) similar to those already posted.

Re: The church in Crete which can only be visited once a year

Three of us visited last week, on Dec 15th 2018, arriving at about 11:30. The church service had finished by then. We wandered freely all round the fortress first, inside and outside.

Re: R.I.P.

Interesting discussion! I've just replaced my 10-year-old Meindl shoes - not boots, as my ankles won't tolerate boots any more - by the latest version, which look and feel remarkably similar to the originals.
