Easter Eve in Malia - Christ is Risen, Judas is burned, the Devil has been frightened away by a thousand explosions, and we returned to Vrahassi at about 12.30 to find its streets empty, doors closed, not a bowl of Easter soup anywhere!

We spent Easter morning with our Greek friends in Sisi, spagetti in the pan, chicken pieces roasting over a half barrel of burning logs, the lamb slowly cooking over the barbecue, shepherd boots and shepherd knives, loud Greek music and perfect hospitality.

Our afternoon in Vrahassi was not quite the same experience but we joined a big table of revellers in the centre and enjoyed traditional Easter lamb and painted eggs. The weather was glorious.
