Thomas spoke fluent Greek and English, becoming in effect our personal translator, breaking down the gargantuan language barrier with these fascinating people. How anyone can speak German and Greek, both impenetrable to me, let alone English is beyond belief.
Despite the awesome beauty of the country and its culture, thanks to Thomas and face to face contact, my memories of Greece are topped by the proud, hospitable people, clearly descended from a superior culture inspite some tarnishing aspects of modern life. There were so many exceptional acts of kindness to recount by Cretans often without two Drachmas to rub together.
