Christmas on Crete - 25, 26 December 2009

Heraklion harbour and Venetian Fortress
St Mark's Lion on FortressThe Zorbas hosts turned on an amazing Christmas dinner, they called it 16 courses, and I'm sure there were 16 different dishes to be enjoyed. Murray was suffering by a heavy cold by this stage (I think his body said, you have finished your work responsibilities, and take a few sick days now – so the cold he had been fighting off for several days, really took off), but managed to enjoy his dinner despite this.
