This Is Crete! This is Greece! Flash Pentozali at Chania's Beautiful Old Harbour....

Chania's picturesque Old Harbour is always a very popular place for coffee and a snack but on Megalo Savvato - Holy Saturday this year it was particularly crowded...

Along with all the people basking in the warm Saturday sunshine, popular Cretan performers George and Nikos Stratakis were also enjoying their coffee at the old port of Chania. On their table sat a big drum, a daouli... 


 It attracted a child's interest and when he started to beat a rhythm....
the performers picked up their instruments and started to strum and play along, unable to resist the temptation.

It didn't take long for the dancing to start...  

Greek and foreign passers-by alike joined in the traditional "pentozali", joining in the fun all along the harbour.

The dancers hand-in-hand, lined up from one end of the old port to the other...

Sit back and watch the whole thing in the video Dancing with a Cretan Heart below...  then book your flight to Greece!
