A night of poetry with Sylvia Mouzourou and Nicholas Samaras with emphasis on the poetry of Nobel Laureate: ODYSSEUS ELYTIS. July 14, 2011
It’s a long trip from Heraklion to Agia Ioannis by bus. You start on the northern coast, go up over the spine of Crete, then work your way down winding roads to the sea. Agia Ioannis, or St. John’s, rests right on the Mediterranean on the southern shore of the island. Get on a boat and head south and less than three hundred miles away you land in Libya.
