Day 16: Finding Nemo Means Finding the Aquarium First

View Greece with William on empaustian's travel map.

Having confidence in our bus riding skills after yesterday, Will and I discover a nearby bus stop to the center and then go to the bus station to make our way to the Crete Aquarium.

The Crete Aquarium is the largest on the eastern Mediterranean. It is past the airport in the middle of nowhere, and yet once you arrive, the parking lot is full and people fill the entrance.
I love aquariums, probably because my Grandparents used to live in Newport and almost every time we visited, they would take us. The Crete Aquarium did not disappoint!
We saw sharks, which they had apparently shipped in because the only sharks in Greece are smaller sand sharks. We also saw an assortment of fish, eels, sting rays, and beautiful creatures of the sea. Each exhibit had the names of the animals in at least 28 different languages.
We took the bus back to the center to have lunch and shop around before returning to our apartment to enjoy the Greek siesta.

When we got up to shower and leave for dinner the water had been shut off. Our hosts apologized and apparently shared the same problem. Luckily, it came back on later that night. We figured if this was the biggest mishap so far, than we were lucky!
