Christmas lights in Chania town

We had quick trip round town looking at the Christmas lights before going out for dinner on Friday night.

Outside the Municipal Market there is a large tree, and a nativity scene flanked by brightly lit angels.

There are also various ships made of fairy lights around town, presumably out of respect for Saint Nicholas.

For dinner we had some very strong Mojitos at Hippopotamus first - real headache inducers actually - and then went to Konaki. Konaki is a bit of a favourite as it was the first place we ate in Chania. We've recently celebrated two years since we left the UK, so it seemed appropriate.

There is much less on the menu in the winter - our host dismissively waved away a couple of pages saying this was tourist stuff he didn't have anymore. Claire went for lamb, I had baby goat in olive oil and wine, and for our pudding alongside the raki and some cake we got a massive plate of fruit. It was a very nice way to lead into the home-made gluttony of the festive season!
