Some Brit ex-pats in our Crete Forum even write odes to us
as a testimonial! (:- (;-

A "Tongue-In-Cheek ODE TO BIC

"I FOUND THIS EX-PAT RABBLE QUITE BY CHANCE
AND HOPED MY LIFE, ON CRETE, THEY’D ENHANCE
I ASKED A FEW Q’s AND GOT BACK A FEW A’s.
LIFTING MY SPIRITS WHILST COUNTING THE DAYS

QUESTIONS ON HOUSING, ANIMALS AND DAMP
IF I STAY IN THE SUN, WILL I GET CRAMP?
IS LIFE SO MUCH BETTER IN THE SOUTH MED?
WHO CARES, ONE DAY WE’LL ALL BE DEAD

IS THE SEA WET? DO THE CLOUDS HIDE THE SUN?
CAN YOU BUY BROWN SAUCE WITH CHIPS IN A BUN?
WILL I BE EATEN OR JUST OR JUST GNAWED AT THE EDGES?
(IF THEY DON’T SELL CHIPS, WHAT ABOUT WEDGES?)

WHEN THE QUESTIONS ARE DULL OR WE’RE IN A BAD MOOD
WE TURN ON SOMEONE, WE SO WANT TO BE CRUDE.
WE WANT TO BE CHILDISH AND SAY HOW WE FEEL
BUT WITH GERALD (NEW ADMIN) THAT’S NOT THE DEAL

I PEN THIS CRAPPY ODE FOR ALL TO READ ON THIS SITE
NOT FOR POSITIVE REPLIES OR TO START A BIG FIGHT
NO, I WANT TO MAKE ONE THING GO AWAY IN A BLINK
HUNDRED-PLUS POSTS TO STOP MY NAME BEING PINK"

"Ode" (from the Ancient Greek word ὠδή)

Chicago Traditional English Fish and Chips, Chania

Chicago Traditional English Fish and Chip Shop. This was a venture by Brian Saunders of Channel 4's "A Place In Greece" Fame in Almerida (Almirida), 20 something kilometres outside Chania. Now Brian is taking a fresh direction. Updated to May 2009. Did they or didn't they sell their house featured in the Crete TV series? More here.

The Cretan Family is in Stalis, near Malia. It is run by Korinna and Nektario. It is THE BEST place in Stalis for All Types of Pita, including Gyros, Chicken, Burger and even Vegetarian.
