Hello again,
Last night we had dinner at Samaria - it was so nice to meet them all again who we learnt to know a few years go when they refurbished Samaria/Livikon. And of course we had our first dinner at Lefka Ori.
Yesterday we met swedish Birgitta from Umeå, for about 1 1/2 hour before she was going to Agio Roumeli where we will meet up tomorrow and have a nice day together and stay at hotel Paralia.
Today we had lunch at Mesochori Grorgios place and ate stambagati lamb and chicken in the oven.

Before the lunch today went to the beach Vatalos for a swim close to Frangokastello where it usually are 2 cars, but today it was about 6 motor homes from different countries in Europe and about 25 cars. We have never seen so many people there.

Everyone here says that it is like a normal August with so many people and it is the end of October and everybody are soooo tired now after the very long and very very busy season.

The boat Delfini have a new logo on the the which says Deligiannis Lines. They are doing good business with many tourists travelling to Sweet Water Beach and to Loutro.

It is so strange to see Xenia hotel closed and in totally darkness. Hopefully they will sort out there family conflict soon.

Bye for now
Marie and Andrew

Hello Annelie,
Thanks for the greetings. Oh nice that you and your family just been here as well. We must just have missed each other as we arrived the 21st.
We came back to the village last evening after spending 2 nights in Agio Roumeli at hotel Paralia next to Tarra. Monday the 25th was probably the last day Samaria Gorge was open, it was closed yesterday and today because of expected bad weather. The owner of Paralia, Niko didn’t think it would open again more this season. So the hotels and restaurants there were preparing to close down. We got the first raindrops yesterday since we came to Crete the 19th, and the rain was long awaited.
Bye for now.
