From Agios Ioannis to Athens
Returning to the city is a little bit like an electrical shock to the system. Cicadas are replaced by car horns, and footpaths becomes subway tracks. The journey from a remote village in Crete to the center of Athens is overwhelming. Where museums cost ten times what they did on the island, and people travel from across the globe to see fractured sacred goddesses, not lounge on Cretan shores.
