Saint Nicholas


We went to Agios Nikolaos today, a town of about 20,000 people some 15 miles away. It was quite pretty, centred on a small lake attached to the sea.

Never mind that, here's the Caesar's salad I had there for lunch.

Sweetcorn, olives, smoked ham and chicken are not traditional ingredients in a Caesar's salad. The dressing does not normally look and taste as if it's been made by Dulux, too.

This is typical of Cretan food: inexpensive, plentiful, and bearing only a passing resemblance to what you expected.

The ice cream shop we found selling 45 flavours was very good, though. It exceeded our expectations. Maybe they make the ice cream out of goat's milk or something.
