    ... of thousands of years old coins. Investment banker is my guess. Iraklion is a dirty busy little port city. But don't let her looks fool you. There's lots to do, see and appreciate. It's been around since the Neolithic age, some 10,000 years. A layer cake of time and surprise. We enjoy a stone-oven baked pizza watching the traffic and people.

In the center of ...

    Weather: glorious. Slip, slop, slap.
    6.30am arrived at the Island of Crete where we disembarked at Ag. Nikolaos (means Saint Nicholas) where Olive Oil products are paramount. The Cretan diet is known as one of the healthiest diets in the world (1/3 largest).
