Crete, Crete, Greece
Today we rented a car and drove around the immediate area of our hotel. Crete is a large island (150 miles by 30 miles) so we didn't have time to explore most of it. We did see another archaeological site dating back to 3rd century BC followed by a drive to Plaka where we managed to take a wrong turn. The drive was on a mountain top goat path and we were not sure we were going to make it without destroying the car. When we arrived at Plaka we explored this seaside town and followed it with lunch in a beachfront taverna. Tomorrow night we leave Greece for Paris as we start on our way home.
