It is amazing to be back in Crete again and this time for three weeks. The first week went by fast. With classes in the morning and the beach in the afternoon. The ladies that cook our meals are so adorable I want to take them home with me. They are always happy. The meals here have been amazing with all of us being on the "Cretan diet".
Yesterday we went on a 6.5 mile hike through the Samaria Gorge. The landscape was beautiful with a river running through most of the gorge. We stopped and had lunch part way through the hike at an abandoned village. When we finished the hike we went to a beach that we had not been to before and had a casual swim in the Libyan sea. The beaches here are so gorgeous with the water being clear as far out as you can swim.
