Photographer's Note

Hania, spelt also Chania, is one of the nicest towns on Crete. It has a short driving distance to majority of the best beaches on the island. Spelling of Greek town names is occasionally challenging. I suppose the original names are in Greek alphabet and on top of that many countries have their own versions of the names it is hard to know how to spell things properly. Hania is actually quite a popular name for a girl in Poland. We know three little girls named Hania who we more or less regularly meet. We did send a postcard to one of them: postcard from Hania to Hania. The pink domed mosque along the Hania’s harbour is probably the most photogenic structure in town. As much as it is a symbol of Turkish oppression in this region, it certainly adds a nice feature to the harbour. I have visited Hania on an extremely hot day so I couldn’t really ask my family to walk these streets for too long, even though for me personally visit to Chania was one of the highlights of my holidays on Crete. As usually, I got some great photo ideas later. They will have to wait for my next visit to Hania. What I liked about this photo were the three guys in brightly colored T-shirts: red-yellow-blue. I think these are colors of Romanian flag.
