For several years (exactly from 2008) along the New National Road, speed cameras have been set up in many places. Most of them are well marked with appropriate plates. At the moment, probably all do not work or are devastated. You should not be surprised by the view of the speed camera mast, which case with measuring equipment is covered with a garbage bag. Such insights can encourage faster driving. Unfortunately, however, succumbing to the temptation of stronger gas pressure may end in an expensive mandate, as the Greek Police (like Poland) has many places where it is willing to set up with traditional dryers and laser speed meters. The last devices are particularly painful, because they allow you to control the speed from much larger distances than in the case of traditional radars, as I see in the video below in person. Unfortunately, despite the efforts of the Greek policeman to convince me that I'm innocent, I did not manage to avoid the punishment.

One of the unique features of Crete is the still-alive presence of small family factories engaged in craft production of traditional Cretan products.

Today we would like to introduce you one of such places, that is, the Hydria pottery plant located in the town of Asomatos.
