The Mirage That Held Back the Nazis

From “Rare Earth”. ( YouTube / Nebula )

Tall tales always seem to get taller, but their purpose often stays the same. The myth of Frangokastello might be little more than morning dew, but to the people of southwestern Crete – it is anything but a mirage.

One more from Crete and then I think I’ll tell the story of how I talked my way out of Lebanese prison to start our season there.
