There's a phone shop in Kalyves, one or two shops along from the Pankreta bank at the plateia.

Re: Vietnamese Rice Paper Wraps

Does anyone know of a store that would sell Vietnamese Rice Paper Wraps in the Chaina area. Depends where you are. If you mean Chania area is that east or west of? There's a shop called Toko in Kalyves which I'd think is the best bet. The couple who run it sell a wide range of Far Eastern food item...

Yes, we had that when we lived in Tsivaras but we became used to those too, and went to sleep.

Re: dog barking at night

Solution: only live in tourist areas close to hotels and apartments. It works We live within 80m of a large hotel and are surrounded by apartments. We don't have much in the way of barking dogs or croaking frogs but there are more than enough yowling cats to counter that shortage. We also have nois...

Re: car trailers

As far as I'm aware it's not a new ruling. It's several years since I checked but my understanding has been that a trailer and the towing vehicle always have to be registered together as a pair.

Re: MOT time again!

Where is the nearest test centre from Kalives? Last test my car went through was very simple. I took it for a pre-test check with Babis (the vehicle accessory shop opposite the Armenoi road petrol station). Took the car to him 09:00. "I'll phone when it's ready or if there's anything expensive...

Re: MOT time again!

The quickest way to it is leave the highway at Mournies junction and at the first set of lights (before Lidl) make an illegal 'U' turn and it's 100m or so on the right.

(In case anyone misunderstands that is tongue in cheek.)

Re: noise

Does he sell this furniture or is it for his own use? If it's a commercial enterprise find out if the premises are approved for the purpose and does he have the necessary licence to trade. If he's renting a villa close to others I'd hazard a guess that he's more likely to not have the relevant permi...

Re: dog barking at night

The randy cats are much, much worse. After many years I'm still surprised (almost) by the volume of noise emitted by a small bundle of fur. But that's life in Crete; there are so many good thinks that compensate handsomely.

Re: dog barking at night

Believe me, you'll get used to it. When we first arrived we were surrounded by neighbours with (mainly) yappy dogs and a few deep throated ones. They're doing their jobs of alarm raising when non-householders get close. The snag is, many of them include passing cars, cats and pine martens etc., as p...
