June 2019, I have never seen such a bad tourist june in the 27 years that I live and work here.
I worked only 1 day the last week but you know, it doesn’t really bother me. Last year I would have been in a very bad and anxious mood. But since I started doing yoga and meditation (I started last winter a yoga teacher course) I have a totally different look on life now.
So yesterday evening when I heard that I do not work again I decided to go to the beach, do a nice morning meditation sitting on the sand and go for a swim.
It’s like I’m on holidays and it really feels like holidays too. It’s like I’m having my first holidays in a real long time!
When you’re in Crete at the beginning of May you see this kind of tree with it’s yellow fruit everywhere. It has a yellow fruit that has a sweet taste when it’s ripe.
It’s one of the few fruit trees that cary ripe fruit at that time of the year and it is very easy to eat. You should peel the fruit and eat its flesh, it has some dark brown seeds inside that you should not eat.
The video below shows you more about these loquats.
It is 3 weeks ago that I left my beautiful home in Fodele and I miss it already.
Fodele is a typical Cretan village and my house is built outside of the village with great view over it. The house is also surrounded by orange trees which give me every spring a great view and a lovely blossom smell every time I open my balcony door.
What is amazing here during summer time is that twice a day swallows come to the pool to drink water or to bath here. Even while you are swimming in the pool, they come along to have their bath.
