The Island of Crete

14 Oct

I met the Wanderwoman group on Thursday and we flew to Chania, Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands. I met my roommate Diane and we were given a two story suite in Casa Delfino, a 5 star luxury hotel….not my usual style of travel, but I am not complaining. We had a traditional Greek Family style dinner of chicken with prunes, greek salad, and several “hummus” style spreads of eggplant and fish roe.

Our second day in Crete was a walking tour of the market followed by a cooking class in the hills ….

The last day in Chania was a day at leisure. I meandered around the small streets and harbour, read my book on the rooftop of the hotel, watched a local concert of Greek dancers and had another delicios meal with my Wanderwomen friends….
