  row-row-row at Melissani cave
by Crift

This out-of-this-world place, is one of the main attractions of the island. After a --long-- wait in the queue, you embark on a small row boat and take a ride around this well-like cave. Its opening on the ceiling makes the waters look VERY turquoise at around 11:00 to 12:00 at noon when the sun hits them.
The tranquility of the place is abruptly disrupted by the strange shouting of "Thank you! Thank you!" of one of the rowmen. It is worth visiting, nevertheless.
