On the Road Again #45


Above all the revelatory meeting was an overwhelming catharsis for Thomas who like many post-war German youths had nagging doubts about their fathers’ activities in Nazi occupied Europe. An unfathomable burden had been lifted from his conscience - we could see it clearly radiating in his face and demeanour.
The next day Manolis drove us to the haul road that led up to the Lefka Ori mountains and the Samaria Gorge.
In those days the Gorge was a barely discovered natural wonder stumbled upon from conversations in Chania, inciting a curiosity that drew us inexorably up into Crete’s imperious mountains.
