    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? Lisa and i have hit the seawall early. Walking along, we stop to ...

    We were sad to leave Chania but there is more to see in the eastern part of Crete too! We ended out stay with a visit to the Archeological Museum and then set off for our return 3 hour trip to Iraklion. We were greeted like old friends returning to our hotel which was our home for the next 6 nights.

    We had dinner at Peskesi for Bob's birthday. The restaurant specializes in ancient recipes of Crete. Grilled pork with sun dried tomatoes and grilled mushrooms ...

    ... of the ship, a water taxi took us into town. Apparently there is "Paradise Beach", which we were planning on going to until we heard there's also a "Super Paradise Beach" in Mykonos. Obviously we had to go to the "super" one. We found a friend in town we had made on the ship the night before who was also searching for the beach. The three of us found a cab to take us there. It did not disappoint. It was everything you would expect a Greek Island beach to be, plus nudity ...

    ... storied building, spanning 5 1/2 acres, and was destroyed twice in its history, once from fire (roughly in 1700 BC), the second and later destruction from a major earthquake which ravaged Crete. Two factors are thought to have contributed to the end of the Minoan: the possible eruption of the volcano Thera and the rise of the Mycenean civilization upon Crete.

    ... was built to lock the Minotaur in. Today there is just some stones and other pieces of rubble but from what I imagined I think the palace would be really impressive especially for something that was built 4000 years ago. Unfortunately a British archeologist, Arthur Evans, in the 1900's found it and tried to recreate the palace how he thought it should be. Modern archeologists now think he got it a lot wrong. At the villa we packed our bags because we are leaving ...
