This photo was taken from in front of "Hotel Victoria" where I stayed for ten days in Aghios Nikolaus. Amoudi Bay. I swam at this beach a few times and the water was very warm, even at the end of October.

I took a bus tour to south east Crete and Toplou Monastery was one of the places we stopped. It had been fortified with cannons and I believe that Toplou is greek for "cannon".

Me in 1980 at Dionysos, a cretan festival. This photo was taken by a professional photographer after I had had several glasses of wine.

Ierapetra is on the southern coast of Crete and 150 miles south across the ocean is Tunisia...northern Africa.
