Heraklion Crete

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 ...

... t have made for very interesting pictures. It was an unusual experience, floating along atop a 1300 foot deep hole that blew its top 4000 years ago. They suggest this explosion may have indirectly led to the fall of the entire Minoan civilization. Also, many believe the myth of Atlantis was based on this eruption.

Duty Free had an excellent selection of European wines, at very low prices in €. Low on ...

... and tourist resorts. We took a bus ride to Lindos, the site of an old Acropolis and quaint town with tiny streets and white houses. The film, The Guns of Navarone was shot there. There were donkeys to take people to the top of the Acropolis. I dipped my feet in the crystal clear Aegean at St Paul's Bay. Later, we wandered through the old city with its moats and high walls. This is where the Knights of St John ruled for several hundred years. Loving all this ...

Greece....who knew there was such a market for fur

... harbor area. We take a walk around the lake, which looks as if it empties into the Ionian Sea. Not sure- but I just can't get over the blue water. So blue and refreshing and hiding nothing. The fish, so many, many fish.

The shopping here in town is rather luxurious to say the least. Way, WAY too rich for our meager pocketbook. I can’t tell you how many fur stores I saw – it has to be 90 ...
