A Walk Through the Streets of Vrahassi

Hello Blog Readers,

As promised here is a video shot yesterday as I walked through the streets of Vrahassi. There wasn't much going on, maybe because it was 1 p.m. and I missed the morning rush hour, but I think you can get a flavour of the place. The temperature is about 28 at the moment, and it's a bit cool to sit out in the evening, but very pleasant if you have a jacket.

Vrahassi has a wonderful charm to it even though there are lots of old buildings that have been left to
crumble. It is a bit like living in the middle of an archaeological site, but all the more interesting for that. The narrow streets are wonderful to explore, and it is not difficult to imagine how life once was when the village was a thriving center of industry: weavers, carpenters, butchers, lots of coffee shops, a post office, and a host of other trades. Now, time has moved on, and we are left with one village shop and a museum. Even so, this is such a special place to visit. You should definitely put it on your list if you are coming to Crete.

As you can see in my video, there is a wonderful internet connection in Vrahassi, and most of the young kids have a computer. It is a strange mix of ancient and modern.

Last night, David and I went down into the square for a glass of wine and food at one of the tavernas. It was a pleasant experience; we talked to a few locals and enjoyed the company. Then it was back home and back to work. In fact, because of the time difference in America, David and I were up at 3 a.m. to listen to the co-owner of Empower Network, on the internet. He was outlining details of the launch of our new product, the ENV2 blogging platform. This is cutting edge technology that will revolutionize blogging, and give every business an edge in the market place, whatever that business is. We are very excited about being able to promote it. And if you don't know about the ENV2, then this is where you can find it. We shall get right back to you.

So, hope you enjoyed a walk with me through the streets of Vrahassi. I'll be back with more Vrahassi news, tomorrow.

Love Jane x
