I almost passed this little gem of a place by on my last trip. Located in the mountain village of Vrahassi (Βραχάσι), once a village on the main highway between Irakleio (Ηράκλειο) and Aghios Nikolaos (Άγιος Νικόλαος) until a new duel carriageway was built many years. Now it sits quietly in isolation. I would imagine it was a nightmare of a place in season with coaches passing through constantly. I'm sure many businesses closed as a result of the new road. However, I sort of like it as it is now.
The room where I took the shot wasn't particularly inspiring so what you see is pretty much all there was, it was a room with a chair and fireplace. For those that enjoy the maps here is an aerial shot of the village.

The music today (link below) is from the album Sacrebleu by the music producer and DJ Dimitri from Paris. Born in Istanbul, Turkey to Greek parents, Sacrebleu was his first full album release. The track below is the first track 'Prologue' attached to the 17th track 'Par Un Chemin Different'. I have used footage from the 1958 film Mon Oncle ("My Uncle") staring Jacques Tati. I've been trying for some time to add clips to some of my favourite tunes so if you want to see others why not pop over to YouTube or Vimeo.
