Mounteneering @ Kollita Gorge, Katw Poros April 19, 2008

Last Sunday, after an adventurous travel with Mounteneering Club of TUC, we finally spotted the path to Kollita Gorge, Katw Poros. Actually, the difficult part was due to weather (about 33 C and high humidity levels) and not the rocks! Afterwards, we visited the Sarakas tavern to taste his delicious snails!

Yet another delayed post 🙂

Two weeks ago, during another great food adventure series, we visited tavern Sarakas in a small village called Kato Poros, Rethymno prefecture.

The food was really delicious as expectedin a classic Cretan tavern.  What was really suprising  was that the tavern walls was full of mantinades (short Cretan poems), some of them really amazing! We couldn’t resist but writing one mantinada ourselves in the walls!

And of course the tavern host (which we call Captain Sarakas) is a really great guy!
