An out of the ordinary coffee in Rethymnon Town

As the sun was casting its warm rays on our beautiful Rethymnon Town, a cup of coffee is all we had in mind. Weather in Crete was still cool but pleasant enough for us to sit and enjoy our coffee outside. After all, it was still early March. Needless to say that was “a dream come true” after a harsh winter that kept us indoors for several months. People were strolling carelessly up and down in a relaxing mood.

After a short walk in Rethymnon and some commemorative photos and with our jackets still on, since the clouds decided to pay us a visit once again, we finally sat in our favourite cafe. A few moments later the coffees arrived, accompanied by some delicious sesame cookies. This is not just our opinion, you must believe that. Our visitor fully agrees.

I am talking about a pigeon that suddenly flew to our table and joined the party. And it was only one thing it had in mind, that sesame cookie. I managed to take a photo of the scene as it prepares to take a fearless step towards its next meal.
