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 ...

These facilities seemed to be arranged to drop the mined goods straight into ship hulls and now are just hanging skeletons reaching out over the waves.

... 90% humidity, and the fur stores are a plenty…and EMPTY! The jewelry stores are inviting, but we resist. We went into one store – a woodcrafter. The craftsman was in the back working on yet another beautiful piece. He took simple olive wood and turned them into works of art. We found a bowl we liked, not expensive, but thought of lugging it; then we thought of cutting back – so we said no. He did ...
