coming home from messeleroi. 
   we stopped in at the palace at knossos, but only had half an hour to look around before it closed for the day. it was incredible, and much more enormous than i ever could have imagined, and i didn't have enough time to see even half of it. i wish i could go back and see the rest.

exploring messeleroi, the village where my dad grew up.

   my uncle took me to visit relatives i've never met before.

   picking pomegranates off my papou's pomegranate tree.

   this little boy came up to me while i was taking pictures and started conversing with me in greek. he talked for a good fifteen minutes while we played with his cat and i don't think he ever realized that i couldn't understand him.
