From our apartment we could see this massive stone structure rising out of the sea on the far edge of our view of the island. That first morning we set out to find out what it was. Voila, this is it, the Venetian Fortezza of Rethymno, built in 1573. It was built to ward off the Ottoman Empire but was conquered by them in 1646.
It was hot hot hot up there. We left with intentions to head straight back to our apartment and its beachfront. I'm taking you all there with me tomorrow! Today, in real time, I am headed to Paris with Megan and Sean! Oh, one last thing too, we've passed a mile-marker on our time left. 49 days to go til we fly home! Aaahwoohoo!
