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.

The Venetian port
The pretty old port of Hania, looking wonderfully inviting in the spring.
Don't you think this place should be a part of the protected heritage of the world???
The go-ahead for its restoration has recently been given; let's see how they will spruce it up.
