Everything about Alikianos is beautiful and lovely. A week ago I did not know this place existed and now it’s difficult to imagine leaving. After a cloudy and rainy start to the week, the weather improved tremendously just as classes began..of course.
The women that cook for us and clean the campus are such genuinely kind people that truly care about our experience here and want us to love Crete as much as they do! It’s hard to believe that Greece is going through such economic turmoil and in the height of this massive Eurozone crisis because the spirit of the locals is not broken and they seem cautiously optimistic and bright while Alikianos remains aesthetically untarnished and its people good-natured and kind.
