Crete, Greece - Kreta, Mesonas gorge

Hello walking friends. Here is one to think about. It starts from Karvousi on the road to Sitia. Looks a bit scary but beautiful. I'll try to find out more. I love the music on this video too.

It is 2 degrees in Vrahassi today, and raining. Time to get hot soup on the go. Cold weather is expected for most of the week.

Political news today taken from the Athens News

Chancellor Angela Merkel cemented her political ascendancy in Europe Monday when 25 out of 27 EU states - inclding Greece - agreed to a German-inspired pact for stricter budget discipline, even as they struggled to rekindle growth from the ashes of austerity.
Only Britain and the Czech Republic refused to sign a fiscal compact in March that will impose quasi-automatic sanctions on countries that breach European Union budget deficit limits and will enshrine balanced budget rules in national law.
The accord was eagerly greeted by the European Central Bank which has long pressed eurozone governments to put their houses in order.
"It is the first step toward a fiscal union. It certainly will strengthen confidence in the euro area," ECB President Mario Draghi said.

So, bully for them!

Hope you enjoy the video, I certainly did and I thank Exploring Crete for making it available.
Love Jane x
