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?

... 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 ...
