  • I am living Crete one more time. Tomorrow is my last day home. Is the day where i search for the best Raki of the island and the best graviera (goat cheese) and also the more delicious Kalitsounia (traditional Easter sweet) to take with me. Is the day where i have a few last mimutes of caching up with old friends that i meet on the street or arrange to see. Is the day where i get rid of my strong cretan accent to get back to my normal formal speaking. Is the day where all tastes, smells, words, landscapes are minimized into a small "space" in my brain to be kept safe and precious to contain the rest of my world.
