Yet another shot from the locked up and empty Minoan Prince Hotel, situated just east of Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) on the south coast of Crete. I have been exploring this place on and off for a few years and on a few of the visits managed to get inside. On the last trip in November it was locked up - probably not as a result of my having got in, as I didn't touch a thing, but, I guess it is full of very usable items that need protecting. So, for now I have been locked out, perhaps I'll find it open on subsequent visits. This shot is from the summer of 2008 and the only bedroom I ever managed to get into. The odd things is, that even this place has been closed for quite a few years, there is still a working web site. It's kind of fun to go over and see what it was like when it was up and running. For those of you with an interest here is an aerial view as well. I will periodically check to see what is going there, I guess I have 3 or 4 more shots that I may put up at some stage, but, for now I'll draw a line under this project and move on to pastures new.

Everything must change
Nothing stays the same
Everyone must change
No one stays the same

The young become the old
And mysteries do unfold
Cause that's the way of time
Nothing and no one goes unchanged

There are not many things in life
You can be sure of
Except rain comes from the clouds
Sun lights up the sky
And hummingbirds do fly

Winter turns to spring
A wounded heart will heal
But never much too soon
Yes everything must change

The young become the old
And mysteries do unfold
Cause that's the way of time
Nothing and no one goes unchanged

There are not many things in life
You can be sure of
Except rain comes from the clouds
Sun lights up the sky
And butterflies do fly

Rain comes from the clouds
Sun lights up the sky
And music
And music
Makes me cry
