Photos: Crete and Lesvos

Having left our camera cable in Romania, we got a little behind on posting pictures. Now that we’ve moved in to our apartment in San Francisco and found the local Radio Shack, we have the technology for a little time travel. Behold:

  1. Awesome images! How would you rate your vacation overall? Towards the end, you sounded a little annoyed with the communication issues but thrilled with donuts and vegie food – YEAH! We are blessed to live with those luxuries, huh? AND ENCHILADAS!!! Did you know that the Aztecs acknowledged tamales as the food of the gods and men? I’ll vote for that!
    I digress……
