Rise and Landing in Heraklion – Visit to a chapel – Holly Places Improvements

Today, I started a rise and landing in Heraklion. I arrived in Heraklion between 15:00-15:20. I stopped at the closest Fuel Station, this is a  British Petroleum Unit at 15:35 and I put efficient fuel for a short drive.

I drove towards the rise of The Heraklion Industrial Zone and crossed many roads like I-K-L-M. I remember, the Industrial Zone was flourishing  when I was a teenager in the 90’s. Nowadays, many businesses face financial problems there and few of them can survive.

I continued the drive towards the hill of the industrial zone that The Chapel of Saints Pantes is located. I climbed the stairs and entered in The Chapel and The Holly Temple. I put some money in the relevant box, I took some candles, and lighted the candles for their grace. I kissed The Holly Pictures of The Saints Pantes, including Her Holiness Madonna and exited the temple.

The good points are that:

1)there are surveillance cameras for the protection of the visitors, guests, pilgrims, the chapel and the temple.

2)the chapel and the temple are built by stones and other concrete materials.

3)it has water and other facilities for the host of mass service, baptisms weddings etc

4) it has a magnificent and panoramic view of Heraklion city, and around areas, of Heraklion Industrial Zone, Heraklion International  Airport, and the beaches of Karteros, Amnissos, Tobruk and the avenue towards Chersonissos, Malia and Eastern Crete.

His Holiness Archbishop Irineos:The repairs that have to be made are:

1)A higher wall around the chapel for the increase of safety.

2)Water of the plants and trees when you repair the water network.

3)Paint white the walls, the facilities, the temple and the chapel with insulating paint for their better protection through the pass of time.

4) Remove the stable bars and put bars that can be risen when events are organized.

Most of the above good points and points for improvement can be generalized and applied in chapels, temples, churches, monasteries,

Archdioceses, Patriarchates and other Holly Religious Places.

Grand Tour of East Crete: Heraklio and Lasithi

Grand Tour of East Crete: Heraklio and Lasithi

I crossed a Grand Place of East Crete:Heraklio and Lasithi in 18/08/2012 and 19/08/2012. It was God’s Will to do it and this happens once in a Millennium. I started the tour from Nea Alikarnassos towards Malia. Then I went up to the Mountain Selena. I stopped at Mohos district for a drink. Some friendly people and traditional taverns were there. One exception, a thin man with a moustache who throwed a small bottle of water under my car but anyway, I think he was joking. I stayed until 15:30 Then I started driving like a F1 Driver. It was very dangerous because the roads were narrow. I followed the route from Mochos to Kera and Tzermiado and I made a really Fast Round of Lasithi Plateau and then I started going down from Mesa Lasithi to Zenia, Adrianos with a quick stop for fuel at Agios Nikolaos. Then I continued going down from Agios Nikolaos to Istro, Pachia Ammos towards Ierapetra. I entered Ierapetra and then I turned towards the South East Lasithi. I passed Ierapetra Camping and I stopped at Korali Beach for Swimming. The wind was blowing very strong so that tiny sand stones were flying. The Game continued between 20:00-21:00, when I took the road to the “Queen of South Crete”: Ierapetra. I had some pork meat and Soft Drinks and a Cold Coffee at the East Part of Ierapetra. Then I took the road towards Myrtos, crossing Gra Ligia, Stomio and Neos Myrtos.  I crossed Myrtos between 21:30-22:00 and entered Viannos Municipality (Tertsa) about 22:00. (18/08).I spend the night at a peaceful beach West of Tertsa District (19/08). It was a Miracle. I was staring at the Night Sky who was crystal clear and hundreds of stars were shining. Some Fishing Boats were still on the Livikos Sea till early in the morning. I woke up about 07:00 am and the sea was calm. I “washed my face and body” with a short swim. Then I continued towards Psari Phorada, where I arrived between 08:20-09:00. I had some drinks and sweets and I went for swimming until 13:00-14:00. I had two ice creams and a soft drink and then I took the road back to Heraklion, crossing the Omalos Mountain to Viannos, Panagia, Kasteli, Kalo Chorio, Koxari, Gouves. I reached the North National Highway of Crete between 17:00-18:00 and finished between 17:30-18:00.

It was a unigue driving and tour experience. E-BCR, Michael Kassotakis, www.e-bcr.com
