Bell tower of Dodeka Apostoloi

At every arrival in Sfakia I was anxious to see if the damaged bell tower of Dodeka Apostoli was still there. No anxiousness anymore! For a few days now, there are a scaffolding and workers around.

The Panorama is not yet open. They are still working inside the building.

Back in Sfakia

There is a new construction site in the village. Last year we could not imagine something would fit in there. The rooms/apartments will be finished next year. The rear entrance happens to be in the lower part of the cemetery. A drivable gravel road leads into it from the courtyard of the bakery (pla...

Back in Sfakia

Yesterday an Alphorn player gave us a performance with an instrument you would rather expect to hear in the Swiss Alps. It's Klaus from Esslingen in Germany. The instrument is 3,68 meter long, can be telescopes, is of carbon. So it is easy to be carried along.

Re: Back in Sfakia

Now there is a new fortress in Sfakia. It is called Xenia. Already last year they started the new panelling. One can't miss it after nightfall!

Back in Sfakia

The two last nights we had wonderful sights of Hylocereus undatus, also called with one of the popular names Queen of the Night. Two days ago there were 6 and last night even 10 open flowers. Sadly the flowering is gone in the morning.
