Photographer's Note

Chania Harbour with a glass bottom boat heading out into the open Mediterranean Sea. I did not bother as I had been snorkelling on coral reefs in the Philippines and Australia as well as going in submarine contraptions.

At far left on the horizon is the church of St Nicholas (Agios Nikolaos) built by the Venetians, who were in Hania from 1252 to 1645 AD along with their rivals the Genoese around 1284. The minaret was added during the Ottoman occupation of Crete (1669 - 1897 AD). All Muslims were either killed or returned to Anatolia in Turkey in 1922.
