In the late 70´s my husband and I spent a year in the village of Agios Ioannis in Sfakia. Not many people live in the village today, but we have our memories - and a lot of pictures.
One picture shows the extent of the village in 1978-79, from above, looking west. At that time Agios Ioannis had a total of 55 inhabitants, comprising 13 households.
The other pictures show two of the local inhabitants: Sifi the poet, with log on shoulder, and Georgios, our host, on his donkey.

"In the late 70´s my husband and I spent a year in the village of Agios Ioannis in Sfakia.",

jassou Tone, these will forever be unforgettable experiences and memories. I would like to know more about your time in Agios Ioannis.

The book "Wind auf Kreta" already gives you a good insight into life in the sixties on Crete. The book "In Der Sfakia" also gives a good impression of life and customs in the Sfakia.

Ta Leme, kv
