I have been looking at this empty shell of a hotel for years, for the 12 years I have been going to Crete. It is situated in the village of Pachia Ammos (Παχειά Άμμος). I had no idea why it was built as it's in the middle of nowhere. I recently discovered that many years ago there was going to be an airport built in the area, this place would have been in an ideal location, if it had been built. But, it wasn't and now the place is a shell that was never completed and never inhabited. Now it just sits, a huge lump of concrete used by the locals as storage space and as occasional stables. This room was deep in the bowels of the building!
Don't be shy you learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done
If only you see
Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day
In autumn for free
Yes, be what you'll be.
Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while
Your time away
And once you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth
Your night or your day
Who'll hear what I say.
