Today we had a two hour drive along the highway to Knossos, an archeological site from the Minoan age. It was a Minoan palace that was nearly 4000 years old. It was home to a king who asked Apollo for a bull to sacrifice to honour Apollo. The bull was so beautiful though that the king sacrificed another one,which made Apollo angry. He then made the queen fall in love with the bull, which produced the Minotaur, a half human, half bull, which lived on human blood. ...

Amir flies a Tecnam P92 and undertakes adventures around the med, flying off to Cyprus, Greece and in a few weeks Italy and Croatia. After dinner we went to his dental surgery, gorgeously positioned high on the mountain that looks down on the picturesque Haifa ...

... is 5km from central Heraklion, we went to see some of the places we'd missed the previuos day. We went to St George's Gate which was used in Venetian times as a passage between the city and its port. It apparently leads to a 43m dome-roofed chamber but it was closed off, possibly because it's used as an exhibition venue these days. Because it was closed, we hadn't appreciated what it was when we saw it the previous day.
