Another quick post…
What is Crete’s capital? The answer is letter C. Joke, joke, joke. 🙂
Irakleio is Creta’s capital. The largest city in Crete, and fifth in entire Greece. What you get is a bustling, urban city. Not very hard to notice. It is also hard to deny that this economic center has its both modern and historical importance, and has its full of wondrous discoveries within.
I first introduced you to Minoan Palace of Knossos. If you are to look up “first civilization in Europe” or “history of Europe”, you’d find that this, in Irakleio, is the site of Europe’s first civilization.
Another place of interest is Archaeological Museum.
Me and a friend went to CretAquarium, a stop in Golden Bay, Venetian Fortress, and McDonalds (what!? Don’t judge. They have Greek Mac 😀 ). Crete was once in a Venetian Period, but more on that later. 🙂

And since this is a quick post, I want to share you these very very cool music videos all created by OK GO.
One note: All music videos are impressively one-shot videos.
First is this massive, extreme domino effect “machine”… really really cool …
Second is a highly complex choreographed video. The matrix part close to the end is whoa-insane!
The matrix part is participated by 2300 people. During filming, this video was done in intentional slow-motion playing the song in half-time.
Next is playing “musical instruments” while driving a car … again under one take.
If you did watch it, the song was recorded during filming of the video.
This last one is creative, creative, creative. This truly is “some pleasure in the eyes”…
I really hope you got to see these whoa-some, fun, cool music videos.
Also … Madhu of The Urge to Wander is an excellent, one of the top bloggers in my book. I hope you vote for her entry for “Journeys of a Lifetime Story”. I assure your vote will be casted for the right person, or that you won’t be disappointed following her blog.
Next, a 2.0 of Death Valley, Downtown Chania, or a something-else post.
