The sun shone and shone today......so warm and lovely. Obviously preparing me for what I hope will be sunny and warm waether back in Crete. Ha, famous last words...that will be the kiss of death stand by Phil for 2 weeks of rain. I'm gonna try and do the every other day post so I hope that you will drop by...I'll be watching and any absentees will be dealt with in some way or another.
Tomorrow I have my two weekly visit to social security to explain myself.....I have a cute little pad where I have to record what I have been doing to become employed....jobs applied for...progress...outcome. They can also offer me jobs and if I don't apply for them I can it would seem lose the nothing they give me. I assume once my appointment is finished I will be expected to back out of the office on all fours licking the carpet!

Today's image is another from my wander around the Motel Xenia...derelict and beautiful. I have since found out it was designed by the architect Aris Konstandinidis (1913-1993). He worked for E.O.T (Greek Tourism Board) between 1957-1967. Today the motel just seems to sit and decay beautifully. I hope to get back there and take more before someone does something with it. I have even managed to find a decent aerial view of the place. So here is a map of the Motel Xenia. The cross shaped building is the centre of the complex.
