Re: Any advice on starting a business in Crete?

Yes I think Raki is fairly benign ,when it's your own and you know whats in it. I have drunk some odd tasting stuff that has been offered to me and surreptitiously tipped it away. But mostly I think it's a pretty good drink...we have a very well organised village still 20 mts from the end of our gar...
