    ... It's awesome and noisy and threatening and joyful. Our lives are golden. We get to take it all in. Five pizza delivery motos rotate in and out in front of us. Lots of duct tape keeping them running and all together. Just like our spinning globe. Don't know how it all stays together and don't care. As long as it does. Strange encounters of a genuine kind.

    ... hieroglyphics. Unfortunately no one has deciphered the inscriptions yet. The best guess is that it is a hymn or text of magic character. Bob thinks it is someone's life story.

    Another famous piece is the gold bee pendent from Malia, the 3rd largest Minoan city, which has been dated to between1800 to 1700 BC.

    ... 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.

    ... Minotaur in. Today there isn't too much left of the palace. There are some parts of the palace still standing though, and, from what I saw, I think the palace would be really impressive. Unfortunately a British archeologist, Arthur Evans, in 1900 had started to excavate the ruins but he tried to recreate the palace how he thought it should be. Modern archeologists now think he got it wrong. Then we went back to the villa and packed our bags ready to leave ...
