August 14, 2008
I’m leaving this photo obnoxiously big on purpose, for through a series of unfortunate events, this is the one and only picture of our magical day on the island of Crete. In all of my genius, I deleted all the photos of Crete by accident about a week after returning from the Mediterranean cruise. Of course, the first thing I did after getting home from the cruise was upload the Sbux series to Facebook, so this is the only evidence I have of being there.
The day itself, was truly awesome. Heraklion was nearly deserted due to an obscure Saint’s birthday (that, apparently, is not obscure in Crete and gives everyone the day off). This, our last port of call on our cruise, was a bittersweet end to an amazing international journey. I didn’t buy anything at this Starbucks; I merely posed in front of it, since I was completely full of espresso and fried cheese from the cafe across the plaza.
