Friday March 9 - Saturday March 10.
An enjoyable weekend in MESI with our friends, Anna and Olle, started with a genuine SAUNA (!) and continued over a very tasty dinner. And on Saturday these experts of hiking in Crete showed us some amazing sites they can take people interested in hiking, nature, and culture. First we arrived at an awesome Minoan cemetery. So awesome that the photographer in Hannu was fully employed by taking care that Milli The Dog didn't fall into the tomb caves in that amazing oak forest where the mysterious Minoans are buried (and now we are not talking about Knossos!).
Next we came to a high plateau which will be an unbelievable garden of orchids, tulips, etc. in just a few weeks from now.
After a very friendly meal at a taverna which Anna and Olle (rightfully) appreciate for many reasons, we stopped to admire Psiloritis...
...BUT the real attraction was behind our backs!
And, ofcourse, there was WINE to be found inside the stone building...
...guarded by the young Mikis Theodorakis.
And, ofcourse, the sheep were passing by this interesting site.
