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?

... and some of the Roman Forum. We were exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel, but it was nice to see Rome without all of the lines.

Breakfast was provided by the Marriott on the rooftop, which had an incredible view. We sipped mimosas, toasting the beginning of our time together, and enjoyed a fabulous breakfast. A driver picked us up and drove us 1.5 hours away to the cruise port. Seeing the enormity of the cruise ships as you walk up takes your breath away. ...

... 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.
