We only arrived this morning, but its seems that Crete will be the relaxing destination of our trip thus far. We had to get off our night boat from Greece at 6 am this morning, and had a helluva hike to the hotel with our packs, and then a trek/busride to the ancient palace of Knossos. We were dragging ass, but the good thing about it being early was that the sun wasnt in full blast yet. We finished up around 10:30 and luckily the spot Benita wanted to treat us to was open for an early lunch. It was called Napoli in the Oven, and Napoli was a baked spaghetti dish that was their specialty. We stuffed ourselves and now we have freetime for the rest of the day, and for tomorrow as well. Everyone is thrilled to catch up on R&R. The sky and water are completely blue and there are gorgeous views from the beach. The plan is to head to the beach today and/or tomorrow. Then tomorrow night we have our first art history exam, so somewhere before then will be some studying!! (and partying too of course..?) We can check into our hotel at 1:30 today, and then i plan to get clean and chill, then maybe a trip to the beach? Anyways....not much else is new, but i'll try to keep updating!
