"Unusual Pets??" Top 5 Page for this destination Prefecture of Chania Off The Beaten Path Tip by nickandchris

  One for the pot.....
by nickandchris

One day it was really wild and we called in at a beachside taverna in Kalyves. We sat inside as it was raining. When we emerged, we heard strange noises from across the road. Lo and behold, in someone's garden were either ostriches or emus. I am not an expert on these creatures so weren't sure which they were but I had a pretty good idea they weren't being kept as pets and would soon be appearing on a menu somewhere.
