Then We Stopped Talking, Abandoned. Metaxochori (Μεταξοχώρι, Κρήτη) Crete

A computer training day at work today....you know, expert arrives and shares their expertise with you...usually way more detail than you need but I have to say I enjoyed it...it was useful! I have always loved to learn new computer stuff so it was right up my street really and a distraction from what I usually do...cool! My stomach started rumbling half way through, not sure why...very disturbing! Thankfully there were few enough of us in the room for it not to be heard...you know how it is once it starts to growl then off it goes....the only thing that stops it is FOOD!
I also find other peoples voices when they are teaching me stuff very soporific...could slip off to sleep...not through boredom just the listening process!

Another from Crete. A new village for me, Μεταξοχώρι (Metaxochori) way out at the end of nowhere. I can't imagine that they see tourists at all. An interesting place in that most of the houses were unoccupied due to damage...incredible damage to the walls and foundations to the point where they appeared to be slipping down the mountain. My immediate reaction was that at some stage there had been an earthquake...even if a small one but enough to dislodge the houses. At a later date I spoke to the owner of a local book shop that I know and it would appear that the village is built on a fault and is gradually slipping down the hill. Sad but I guess nature always has it's way in the end. Fancy a wander around the area? Yeah of course you do! Here's an aerial view.

I got sunburnt waiting for the jets to land
Circus people with hairy little hands
Come on boys strike up the army band
I got sunburnt waiting for the jets

How do you feel?
How do you feel?
I cant seem to see through solid marble eyes

Fiery pianos wash up on a foggy coast
Squeaky old organs have given up the ghost
Fire them up and kill the pianos
There's creaky old organs burning on the coast

How do you feel?
How do you feel?
I cant seem to breath with a rusted metal heart
I cant seem to see through solid marble eyes
