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?

It is just beautiful with the old city and ...
... work though. We were getting hotter, the shade was waning and we were done with the stores. We walked to the other side of town, not far at all, and before us – more blue water and a glorious beach. Now, I wish I had my bathing suit. Oh well.
Now more hot and tired, we decided to return to the ship and rest. We grabbed a bit of lunch, staked out two lounge chairs on the pool deck, and relaxed in ...
