Agia Galini, Rethymnon, Crete - With an African feeling
Friday, 12 August 2011
A picturesque village at the south of Rethymnon county in Crete, usually preferred by young tourists. Its residents are very hospitable and are always ready to offer visitors local delicacies. The weather is always good and sometimes in the summer a hot African wind comes in from the Libyan Sea. During those hot days, Agia Galini turns into an exotic place of eerie beauty.
