Yesterday - Zakros and Itanos

Back in Athens, and I've got internet. God knows that I'm tired after one week at Crete.

This is the Minoan palace at Zakros, probably a trading station more than anything else. This is the view from the central court, a place where most historians and archaeologists believe that the bull jumping took place, a view I do not share with then - the place is simply too small.

This is what will normally happen to any mud brick building after no more than 10 years. Picture from Zakros.

The "doric" city of Itanos at eastern Crete. I must admit that I know just about nothing about the site, but it's beautiful.
