Knossos

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. ...

... 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 ...

Minolas came just before 12 so chatted to ...

... It really surprised me, it was so new, but the seats and fitoutout were following the standard "US supermarket" model of vinyl floors and cheap tip up seats. It is so uninviting and uncomfortable, I know why these were built 20 years ago, but to build this today I just see as so disrespectful of the audience, and in turn, the place was all but empty.




Well, that was a very quick visit to ...

... We seem to have a knack for wanting to visit places which are being renovated/restored! We enjoyed walking around the old port though - it's very pleasant! There were good views of the 2500m high mountains which still have snow on them!

Then we walked along the main street which runs from the old harbour - it's called 25th August Street after a massacre of Cretans and British by the Turks in 1898. It's a pedestrian area full ...
