Things start slowing down as evening nears in Chania. The cruise ship and day-trippers have gone and I guess the party folks are resting up for a busy night. For us, photos just seem to come to life during the twilight hours as all the haze melts away into the background.
We took a walk to stimulate our apettite and to just explore a bit.
This town sure has charm, that's for sure......restaurants and cafes seem to be everywhere, tucked into every little spot where there's room for a couple of tables.
Our visit took place before all the riots and austerity measures took effect, but there were hints of it in the air, as we saw protests on two of our nights in Chania.
For visitors like us, it can be difficult to reconcile the beauty of the town, with the difficulties of living here.......
By this time, the sun was going down and we decided to grab a small bite somewhere near to where we were.
We ended up at a very popular restaurant, noted in many of the guidebooks.
It turned out to be out least favorite meal on Crete. It wasn't bad, just not very good. Perhaps staying away from seafood wasn't the best choice.
It's very hard to feel disappointed in such a beautiful place as this......
