Stained With A Past Life. Aghios Ioannis (Άγιος Ιωάννης, Κρήτη) Crete.

Three days of socialising has exhausted me! I'm not the most social of animals and when I get home usually stay there so 3 days of interaction has really taken its toll on me! I feel like I have drank to much, eaten to much and stayed up to late. I guess the next step is to start drawing my old age pension. If you are thinking of phoning me tonight forget it as I won't answer under any circumstances!
Tried to take photos in town after work today...what a waste of time as the place was swarming with graduating students. On the surface there seemed to be lots of photo opportunities but in practice it was so crowded and I was in a shit of a mood anyway so I picked a film up and buggered off home.

And so the photo and a return to the village of Aghios Ioannis (Άγιος Ιωάννης). As I said in an earlier post this village had more than it's fair share of empty houses for me to explore so there will be more as an when I get them processed and I feel sure the village itself warrants more visits when I get back to Crete. It was an odd village in that parts of it had been renovated beautifully and yet the houses in the more inaccessible parts of the village were just tumbling down. I guess if you can't get transport in it makes the whole process far more expensive. Anyway for those of you with an interest here's an aerial shot of the area. If you pan out you can see although a mountain village it is still very close to the south coast.

Tin roof shaking, crashing black
Well, i ain’t going back
Deliver me, take me in
Let me breathe your coarse wind
Day is empty, night too long
River hums a sweet song

Every song your lungs sang
Every lie your eyes told
Canyon whisper, canyon weep
I thought you were behind me

Tin roof shaking, crashing black
Well i ain’t going back
Deliver me, take me in
Let me breathe your coarse wind
