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.

This fabulous oak tree is growing in the middle of the outdoor dining area of a taverna in Armenoi, Hania. It provides natural much-needed shade during the summer, and when the wind breezes through the trees, it's like a natural form of air-conditioning.
