Last night, I walked out on the breakwater that goes across the harbor. It was built by the Venetians, out of cemented blocks of stone in a three-level amphitheater shape. There is a lighthouse at the end, but the top of the wall got too rocky to walk on, and too high to jump to a lower level, so I didn't get all the way out. I met Jusuf from Lebanon; he had come to Chania to work, but his English was very limited, and I can't say we did much real communicating.
the harbor is lined with open air restaurants and lit up at night. People promenade the edges of the water all night long. Today I want to to see a beach or two, around the other side of the harbor.
