For Sale – 31st July 2013 –
We were in Crete a little over a year ago with some Sydney friends, and this was my favourite place. Chania is the second largest city in Crete, but it feels more like a bustling town. The ‘old town’ is built around a lovely harbour, and crammed with the usual Greek tavernas and bars. Behind this, is a myriad of lanes and alleyways to explore – fairly touristy I guess, but the whole place does have a great buzz to it, even when you get further away from the harbour, where’ll you’ll also find some interesting Minoan excavations, as well as Venetian and Turkish areas.
This painting is of a very small area along the waterfront (our hotel was the pale blue one on the right!), with the haphazard line of awnings, and shops and restaurants below. It was fairly windy when we visited, and the harbour was rough, hence no boats lined up along the front.
