I glanced up from my tablet and saw towering crags looming above everything else. Dad had rented a car and we were zooming west across the island of Crete. We turned off the winding road we were on and drove up a dirty snaking road until we got to an ancient hilltop called Polyrinia. I got out of the car and froze for a moment.
