... 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 ...

They're shaped like logs about the size of an egg roll and they're essentially deep fried gravy. Not the healthiest food, but they were delicious. And we all thought it was hilarious to be eating Dutch food in Greece. Today we're headed to the ruins of Knossos, which was an ancient Minoan settlement and is also where ...
