More from Crete and more from the tiny village of Ayia Pelagia (Άγια Πελαγία) in fact more from the same room as a few days ago! A remote village on a mountain track to nowhere. One road in and out and one of those places that everybody hears you arrive in and as you walk past every door you know that you are being watched. I had been there a few years back and experienced the same unsettling feeling on that occasion too. If you have a mind to go there here is an aerial view of Ayia Pelagia (Άγια Πελαγία) and the surrounding area to assist you. Honestly, there ain't much there!

Adam Beckman tells the first part of his story, about how,
back in the 1970s, he and his friends broke into an abandoned house
in the small town of Freedom, New Hampshire. The home turned out to be
a perfect time capsule, containing the furniture, letters
and personal effects of an entire family ... abandoned for decades.
It seemed like the family just vanished one day, leaving salt and pepper shakers on the table,
notes on the bedroom mirror, and a wallet with money still inside.
Adam and his friends read the letters, saving some as clues, and never forgot.
