Additional Comments: This is a true account of the life in Crete as we can put it with the limited space we have. By now some of you may have guessed that we now reside here, which was a dream we had many years ago. We are now starting to build our house so that the three of us can live, the wife, me and our dog Luca, can enjoy the life of the Cretans.
