Visiting Crete any time soon?

You might want to know that the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, Crete (one of the largest in Greece) is closed for renovation.

You might also want to know that it will remain closed until 2010.

You might even be interested to know that the Greek government is trying to avoid advertising this fact very much, so as not to “discourage” tourists from visiting Crete during the next couple of years.

So, if you are into visiting museums, think twice about going to Crete until 2011.

Oh, and just to be on the safe side, make it until 2012, because, you know how things go in Greece: sometimes we say some work will take 2 years, but it might end up taking 3, and since the Government does not want to talk much about it, you can never know for sure what’s going on, right?

My source of information (in Greek): Το μουσείο του Ηρακλείου και το κράτος-κακοποιός…

    We, the glorious Greeks, spend our time throwing tops to barrels until the wine is ready to drink..
    Then we drink the wine and keep on throwing caps till the next drink..
    Being lost on our deepest thoughts we forget that submitting our ancestors were great philosophers and scientists – without even trying to make ourselves the same “knowledge lovers” makes us the most lazy nation in the world..
    2012 will the museum be ready? I don’t think show.. Maybe 2020..

    Nice post. I study something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It can at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and follow just a little one thing from their store. I’d desire to use some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
