  7. 7. Samaria´s Gorge is a descent of sixteen kilometers across a gorge. It´s very steep, difficult and dangerous because there are a lot of rocks and stones.<br />We had some difficulties to do it, because the weather was horrible and many people wore t-shirts and shorts…<br />It was raining all the way, but finally we managed to walk all the way.<br />When we finished we arrived at a small town and some of us went to the beach.<br />
  8. 8. We had to travel by boat to return to the hotel.<br />Later, we arrived at the hotel and we slept all the night.<br />
  9. 9. Day 4<br />Sunday, 23rd.<br />This day was to rest. After Samaria everyone was tired and we stayed in the hotel.<br />Some people went to the beach, swam, played cards… others went to the town, bought presents…<br />That night we went to a<br /> disco and later we went to<br /> the hotel.<br />
  10. 10. Monday, 24th.<br />We went to Spinalonga. This is an old place where the lepers used to stay. It has incredible beaches and it is very beautiful.<br />Spinalonga is an island and<br /> we arrived by boat.<br />Day 5<br />
