    ... oldest amphitheater in the world. Before all the ones we have seen so far! We also saw the minotaurs labyrinth. We never knew that the maze actually was the palace. It was a complicated layout! We then went up the mountain to see Zeus birthplace. It is a cave in the mountains. It represents his mother (rheas) womb apparently. The kids thought it was pretty cool. Evan also enjoyed learning about how Aphrodite was born (look it ...

    ... at poolside. Finished a few books and even work chores at poolside. The pool at elounda gulf villas is an infinity pool that overlooks the gulf of mirrobello and has warm salt water and great view and even a jacuzzi within. Counting us there were five people in the pool and only a few at poolside. Suspect the hotel is emptier than usual although breakfast had a number of tables full of ...

She glossed over a lot of the dates and figures and just ...

    ... This hotel is much larger and more typical to the U.S. than our previous hotels. We just dropped off our bags and went for another two hour drive to Lasithiti Plateau. Lasithiti Plateau is located inland and at a much higher elevation than Heraklion and is a series of twenty tiny villages. Some of the buildings in the villages still have no roofs from bombings in the World War Two invasion of Crete. The villages are known ...

    ... of the Minotaur and the labyrinth is supposed to have taken place. We're excited to see it. Then after that we catch a plane to Athens. Greece is having some financial trouble right now, so we plan to be very careful to avoid any demonstrations or protests. But we've been told by everyone we've talked to that we'll be just fine as tourists, and will likely not even notice or see anything unusual. We're looking forward to visiting the ...
