Re: Giorgos Maggelakis ΣΦΑΚΙΑΝΟΣ ΣΥΡΤΟΣ

At the request of some friends, Pete and I have made an attempt to transcribe and translate the Cretan dialect lyrics to Giorgis's new song, and this is what we have come up with (after running it by a Cretan academic friend in Athens). It was such a pleasure to look at and listen to this video nume...

Re: Giorgos Maggelakis ΣΦΑΚΙΑΝΟΣ ΣΥΡΤΟΣ

Wonderful to see all these familiar local places and wonderful aerial views, and to hear Giorgi's music. The video is a good advertisement for the natural attractions of the Sfakia area. Thanks for posting this!

Re: Sfakian Pie fest 2020?

Markku, are you still in Sfakia? Can you give us some idea of what it's like right now - how many tourists staying there, how busy the restaurants, cafes and shops are/aren't, how the locals are coping with the situation?

Mini-market renovation

These photos (from Facebook) show the revamp of the mini-market at the bottom of the plateia - it looks really nice and welcoming! It's also good to see a couple of tourists around.

Re: More old photos - this time from Agia Roumeli

Thanks again - it's wonderful to see more of your old photos and remember simpler, quieter times there. Keep them coming please!
If you decided to publish your Sfakia photo collection as a book, I would certainly buy a copy!

Re: Bad news about the beach webcam

Let's hope the camera can be resurrected, as it is now our only visual connection with Sfakia! Like deadeggs, I look at the beach cam several times a day. When it isn't working, I turn to the Gavdos webcam, and occasionally the one at Paleochora's sandy beach, but they don't offer the same familiar ...

Re: New video to promote Crete

Gorgeous! How wonderful to see familiar sights and faces, if only fleetingly, and others not in Sfakia. Looks like they are trying to promote year-round tourism with the snow shots. But it also made us sad knowing we can't be there, maybe until next year.
