The city called Heraklion, or if you like, Iraklio. Two names for the same place. It's the big island. Once treed and lush, it was clear cut for timber to build ships. The Minoans ruled the seas. It was the whole world then. 5,000 years ago. Give or take a thousand. Imagine deforesting an entire island the size of Crete. We do it every year in BC. Haven't learned much have we? Lisa and i have hit the seawall early. Walking along, we stop to ...

There were maybe ten people in the entire cabin, we had our own food bar with coffee machine, sandwiches, cold drinks, etc. (by the way the chicken burger was worse than what you get at McDonalds), massive windows opening to the entire front and sides of the ship, and big red cushy reclining leather seats.

Rob and I relaxed by the pool in the sun eating ...
... storied building, spanning 5 1/2 acres, and was destroyed twice in its history, once from fire (roughly in 1700 BC), the second and later destruction from a major earthquake which ravaged Crete. Two factors are thought to have contributed to the end of the Minoan: the possible eruption of the volcano Thera and the rise of the Mycenean civilization upon Crete.
