Christmas Bazaar at Agia Apostoli

20071202_xmasbazaar Standing at the bus stop the other day we saw a Christmassy notice. With our little bit of Greek we managed to work out that it was advertising a local Christmas Bazaar. Well, with the amount of time we spent in Christmas markets last year at Hellbrun and in Salzburg, who were we not to go?

We worked out that it was at the Pergola restaurant near Agia Apostoli, and so on Sunday we packed a bag with a flask and some yummies, and went for a walk. It was a gorgeous day, good enough for people to be sunbathing.

The bazaar itself was very small, but we a bought a sweet little candle holder for the dinner table decorated with fir trees and reindeer. Our next-door neighbour was one of the women running it, so Claire was able to speak a little Greek to her, and we felt pleased that we had done something very local.

The only person on the beach was an over-sized woman in an under-sized bikini, performing an exercise routine that she could have only learnt from a sleazy DVD. Quite an eye-opener, it must be said.

This weekend we will be going to much larger Christmas Fayre in town, run by the Cretan International Community of ex-pats, which is on at the old customs house in Chania harbour.
