Greetings from the island of Crete

The Plane Tree of Hippocrates, Kos

Hello Everyone,

We are all fine and doing well. We are on the island of Crete home of the Minoans.

We had a busy day today. We left Turkey and traveled by boat to the island of Kos. We had a nice time visiting the island which had a fine castle and shops and resturants. The island has a fine castle built by the Hospitallers. It also has the Plane tree of Hippocrates the famous early doctor and author of the Hippocratic oath. The locals believe that he planted the huge tree.

The Apostle Paul visited this site on his second missionary journey. Acts 21

We then went to the airport and caught our flight to the island of Rhodes and then another flight to Crete. After a late dinner we are enjoying our nice hotel in Crete.

Tomorrow we will visit the ruins of the Minoan palace at Knossos and the museum.
