Crete Today, Egypt Tomorrow

So it's Saturday night and we're packing up after yet another great day at the beach on Crete. The Weather here has been perfect, 22-25 degrees Celcius, with no wind, cool nights, and no people since the tourist season wound done a month or so ago - although officially everything will be shut down on Oct 31st. Tonight we're off to the airport for a quick one hour flight to Athens and then a connection to Cairo, arriving at 3 am local time. It sounds like temperatures are 30 C or hotter so the next week in Egypt will be spent trying to enjoy and store as much heat as possible before our return to Canada in 10 days.

Greece has been fabulous primarily because of the people who are so warm and hospitable. We have felt very safe here and certainly rank it as the number one country so far on our list to return to (sorry Italy and France!). All for noew as we're off to work out at a local hotel which is essentially deserted, John
