Norbert Block's Paleochora-Crete

"No Guru, No Method, No Teacher."  (Van Morrison)



Stimulated by John Vaughan and his musical description of a small fishermen's village in Southern Crete (it truly was one at that time), I got to Paleochora for the first time in 1978.

Mostly one can say, it worked out fine. They used to sleep at the beach, the local people used to like them more or less. Remember "Schleicher", "Jannis Extraprima", "Georgio with the strange eyes" and the various other Georges?

In the meantime some of the old Paleochora-freaks asked me, if they met me then. For those: On the left you can see me, as I looked in the old days. On the right It's me today. At least I'm able to open my eyes now.


My particular thanks go to Tasoula und Petros Konstantoudakis, where I once stored my backpack and guitar, now it's my family.

Our two sons have been traveling there each year since 1987 and 1991 and don't want to travel anywhere else.
