Looking Towards Frederick Evans. Pachia Ammos (Παχειά Άμμος, Κρήτη) Crete.

I have been looking at this empty shell of a hotel for years, for the 12 years I have been going to Crete. I had no idea why it was built as it is in the middle of nowhere. The place is a shell, a shell that was never inhabited, anyway, this trip I made a few enquiries and it seems that many years ago there was talk of a new airport being built in the area and obviously this place was started in anticipation. Now it just sits, a huge lump of concrete used by the locals as storage space. This is one of the stair wells and for those who are interested, here is an aerial view of the area. The hotel can be seen pretty much centre screen.

I'd be riding horses if they'd let me
Sleep outside at night and not take fright
I would ride the range and never worry
I would disappear into the night

Everybody needs an angel
But here's that devil by my side
Death's head ring upon his finger
Poor boy hanging on the light

They'll be drawing straws inside the courtroom
As the sudden twilight turns to black
Torches burn into the sad eyes
On the wrong side of the track
