Okay, I'm back. I had a fab time. Two weeks of endless sunshine, alcohol and food. I also managed to squeeze in a stack of photography and general Cretan goodness. The photography started off slowly but I ended up taking about as many photos as usual. I'd like to thank all of you who found the time to pop by and say hi, my apologies for perhaps not catching up with you whilst away - the stolen wi-fi was slow and at times clunky. It was free so I have little to complain about.

Today's image is another from the Minoan Prince Hotel and one of a few I took over Easter. Obviously not long out of business but already fading fast. I was surprised to find that there is still a website in existence for it! Take a look here at the home page and see the hotel in it's former glory! Call me weird but I kind of preferred how I found it...gracefully decaying. It looked as if it had been closed for ages but the web page suggests otherwise. For those of you with an interest here is an aerial view as well. A place that I shall continue to visit until either it is renovated or I am locked out.

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought Oh God, my chance has come at last
(But then a strange fear gripped me and I
Just couldn't ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one, da ...
Oh, I haven't got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine
