October 12 - Chania

This hotel serves a great breakfast. The kind that gives a person strength to get up and do what needs to be done!

First, a walk on the sea wall.

It's hard to believe the storms can rage so violently, they overtop the sea wall and sometimes flood the town! This thing is massive!

Off to the Minoan excavation just a few blocks from our hotel.

And on the archeological museum to see what they found.

Lots of examples of Linear A.

Only a few fragments of Linear B.

Pots, pots, and more pots!

And still more.

Several huge examples of mosaic tile floors.

Great sculpture

Jewelry. And so much more.

The building itself is ancient . . . And beautiful.

And just look at this small sample of stuff waiting to be sorted. 

We pressed on to the bus station to get our bus tickets for tomorrow's trip to Sfakia. More Chania in the next post.
