60 Deutschmark fine on Chania's buses

The local buses in Chania have the majority of their signs written in German.


We've never been sure whether this is because they are all purchased second-hand from Germany, or whether they have been purchased new, but come pre-installed with German language signage. Given the local tourist market, the German signs are actually probably equally as useful as Greek language one.

Still, we saw evidence the other day supporting the second-hand bus theory.

We got on a bus promising us a 60 Deutschmark fine if we hadn't paid the correct fare.


Pretty steep for a €0.80 ticket.

Always assuming, of course, in a post-Euro era, that you could actually lay your hands on any Deutschmarks!
