      ... they spend the next 45 minutes getting mixed together and heated. After that they will separate the olive oil off the top watery mash. The oil is weighed and the remaining skin and seed extract becomes a brown mixture used to feed livestock. Out of 42 bags we had 2,000 Kg of olives that produced 318 liters of oil.

      Today I went to the museum and looked at the findings from the Minoans at Knossos and Phaestos. Great tour with all kinds of amazing pieces. They were a head of their time in craftsmanship.

It's thought to be of significant importance as it was found close to the Kings quarters in what is believed an archive room. After I finished, I was walking into the nearby town of Mires, and I noticed some cotton plants. This struck me as odd, being that we were ...
