    Today we had a two hour drive along the highway to Knossos, an archeological site from the Minoan age. It was a Minoan palace that was nearly 4000 years old. It was home to a king who asked Apollo for a bull to sacrifice to honour Apollo. The bull was so beautiful though that the king sacrificed another one,which made Apollo angry. He then made the queen fall in love with the bull, which produced the Minotaur, a half human, half bull, which lived on human blood. ...

We took some bread to throw in to attract them, and waited patiently, but none came. We did see ...

    For our first day here we drove to Rethymon, a town along the coast. We parked near a large fort overlooking the sea. Then we walked into town and saw the harbour with a lighthouse. We had a lunch at a fantastic restaurant and tried Cretan pies, which have feta cheese, sundried tomatoes and mint in. They were delicious ...
