A 6-week residency in Stalis, Crete turned into a mere 10 days because some people just suck. I was supposed to perform 5 nights a week but due to a slow season and the boss deciding that he was paying me too much, my nights and pay were literally cut in half. Being shafted with work and pay is pretty common in Greece. I should have known better. The best thing that happened while I was there though was enjoying my own little apartment by a swimming pool and a day trip to Spinalonga island. Overall, my 2nd visit to Crete was an underwhelming experience. :(
