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?

Once we finally, lazily, made our ...
Christopher finished his book, The Girl on The Train, and I finished mine as well, The Girl in The Spider’s Web- from the Stieg Larsson series, written by another gentleman with the same characters. I can recommend it without reservation. Absolutely in keeping with the “original”. I’m now reading Girl on the train – and liking it thus far. Trying to figure it ...
