The old minaret adjacent to St Nikolaos church is a perfect reminder of the way the East met the West in the town I made my home, Chania, Crete, Greece.
The photographs I post all help to tell a part of a longer story that focuses on the town and its citizens, whether they are living there now, or have made their home in other parts of the world. As a newer resident, by writing about the town in this way, I am trying to put some order into the chaos that I seem to be confronted with.

Entrance to the old town
The only surviving gate, one of four, leading into the old walled town of Hania. This one is found in the area of Topanas (the old Jewish quarter), and remains attached to a part of the original wall on the western side.
