Crete vacation, post#1 (Sunday June 1.)

What a bad start on our vacation? The plane to Crete was cancelled due to technical problems. The engine had an oil leak, and they had to service the airplane. We were stuck in the airport from 7am to 18pm. Or so we thought. After two hours, we were sent home. Instead of going home, we decided to find the comfort zone, and catch up with some sleep.

Just as we were getting settled in, they announced another three hours delay. We took the hint, and left the airport. 45 minutes later we fired up the bar-b-que at a friend’s house. What a nice way to kill some time. At 1930, 12 hours late, we were back at the airport. And this time everything went as planned.

I feel sorry for the receptionist, who had to stay up until 4am. And we weren't exactly a smiling crowd. But all is well that ends well. The hotel was rather newly redone, and the rooms were nice and spacious. We slept until lunchtime, and decided to take it from there.
