I remember the rough cafe Warwick. There also used to be an old caravan parked behind the beach towards the eastern end which sold toasted sandwiches.
For some years our children were friendly with a group of local young Greeks. They all used to play volleyball on the beach every afternoon. One of them lived in the center of Hania, but his parents had a house at Chrisi Akiti as well. It had pomegranates growing in the garden. It was the first time our two youngsters had ever seen a pomegranate tree!
As I said previously, there were no big hotels there in those days. The Scandinavians had just found the area though, and the hotels were built soon after. One thing has not changed though......Agios Apostoli used to get the rubbish washed up there, even then.
