  • Down among the Cretans !

    Just arrive on the island a couple of days ago after an epic 5 hours on a plane designed for dwarfs ! Cerainly a lot of material for photos, half the island is in the form of ruins!

    Cheers to all !

      Abiding memories of Crete consist of navigating my mother around the island (as my father has BAD case of heeby-jeebies over heights i.e. driving in mountains).

      ME: "You want to go straight ahead at the next set of lights"

      [time passes]

      ME: "STOP! The lights are on red! What are you doing?"

      MOTHER: "You said to go straight ahead at the next set of lights..."

      Strangely enough, this was the last vacation I had the nerve to take with my parents...

        Your certainly right as regards the roads Leah some of the mountain passes are something else plus the fact they drive on the right !! Spent most of the time in the mountains, used buses and hitching lifts to get around.

          Wild fires
          by jeaniesa
          While I'm not in any danger with existing fires, having been near enough to one two years ago to pack my car with irreplacables (i.e., photos and computer), the wild fires raging in CO right now have me on edge.

          The latest news on the fire near Denver is that it's 10 miles from the SW...

          Just had to stop what I was doing to tell you of my last 3 days of Photoshop hell.

          Part of my current brief for a client revolves around scanning his brochure and artwork into my machine before cleaning it up for reformatting. During the process I needed to make some alterations using...

PV has been there for a long time but until it became famous for being the site of a Hollywood film it was just a little port town with...

          Hey Arura! (about travel in Viet Nam)
          by jeaniesa
          Hi Arura,

          I thought I'd move the discussion of VN travel over here so that we don't clutter up the Critiques thread with off-topic discussion. Anything goes over here in Salon though!

          Wow - 5 weeks to see VN! That sounds about right. I brought my mother with me in...
