Went to Phaistos and Matala today. Phaistos interesting but too hot to think today. At 4 euros to get in, it's a bit of a bargain imho but some of the restoration could be a bit more sympathetic.
Matala............ weeelllllll! It's a bit of a 60's theme park, particularly now with the beach music festival next weekend, but is a lovely place. It's just such a shame that it's overrun by hundreds of versions of me (ie tourists!). Go,'cos it's lovely, but don't expect Joni Mitchell to pop out singing Carrie. No 'scratchy rock 'n roll' more reggae. The first song lyrics that sprang to mind were from The Eagles. 'You call some place paradise, kiss it goodbye'.
