The opportunity to learn Greek....
It says in some of the papers that one can sit at the school and conduct self-study with guidance from the teacher, if one is alone and therefore only had half the teaching time .... did not seem so suited to it ... my teacher ran off for the next assignment as soon as the hour was over. Recommended that I go to the local library to work there.

Very nice people who try to do their best. Crete is has a very raw wonderful beauty that I discovered by renting a motorcycle but watch out Greek drivers have strange habits of forcing you into the shoulder and passing anywhere. Once on the small mountain roads and trails it is wonderful.
