Discovering Rethymnon (and Chania)

I knew from previous visits that both Rethymnon an Chania are lovely cities, so I couldn't decide which one to choose, so I spent one week in each city. I still can't say that I prefer one over the other, the are both lovely place. Discovering these cities was another highlight for me.

Melomakarouna, originally uploaded by agelakis.

These are like biscuits but they are soaked with honey, hence their name Melomakarouna (the first half means honey, the second half, I never figured out why it is like that :P ). They are usually made also during Christmas and New Year time! Also, my mother usually puts pieces of nuts on the top, usually almond or walnut pieces. They are delicious :)
