Το θυμάρι.. Thymian..

Η μυρωδια του θυμαριου σε ακουλουθει παντου στην Κρητη..
Aus dieser Pflanze wird der bekannte Thymianhonig hergestellt.
Der Geruch dieser Pflanze ist so intensiv auf Kreta....
Ich kann die Augen schliessen und habe diesen so betaeubenden
Duft sofort in Erinnerung..

Ο κήπος εμπαινε στή Θάλασσα
Βαθύ γαρίφαλο ακρωτήρι
Τό χέρι σου εφευγε μέ τό νερό
Νά στρώσει νυφικό τό πέλαγος
Τό χέρι σου ανοιγε τόν ουρανό..

Οδυσσέας Ελύτης

Frangokastello...Φραγκοκαστελλο Σφακια..

Χωριό Φραγκοκάστελο: Πήρε το όνομά του από το Ενετικό κάστρο του 1371.
Η ιστορία του κάστρου έχει συνδεθεί με αιματηρές μάχες εναντίον των Τούρκων.
Τα εσωτερικά κτίσματα και οι πολεμίστρες κατασκευάστηκαν από τους Τούρκους.

Frangokastello village.
It took its name after the Venetian castle, built there in 1371.
In 1828 a battle for independence was fought against the Turks at Frangokastello.
Hundreds of Sfakiots led by Hadzi Michali Daliani, a Greek revolutionary, attempted to
spread the war of independence from the mainland to Crete.
Instead of hiding in the mountains, as most rebels did in this area,
he stayed in the castle with his soldiers.
Unfortunately, they were massacred and their martyrdom became legendary.
Hora Sfakion. Where the mountains meet the sea....

A child's play...

Playing with mud must be the greatest feeling in a child's world.
The little girl was in her own space...
I hope that her life will be in the future always so carefree.
