Okay, yes, my last post was a bit of a digression.

In my defense, my background is in anthropology, and I am a woman.

Enough said.

In an attempt to transition the blog back into normal mode, I offer these pictures ~

You will find this spooky tunnel at the ancient site of Mycenae in Greece. One is not supposed to go down it, but if the 'one' we are talking about is my husband and children, then 'one' will bring a flashlight with 'one' all the way to Greece just for the purpose of exploring said tunnel. The tunnel leads to underground cisterns where the fortified palace stored vast amounts of water.

Returning from explorations:

The stairway which will return 'one' back to sunlight:

Lots of spiders lived in the tunnel.

I have claustrophobia...not in general...just where caves are concerned. We visited the "monkey caves" as a side trip on the way to Mt St Helens with our grandson. I was startled to find myself in the grip of a panic attack as it became darker, danker, colder. Above ground, gardening: that's the life for me.

Hi ricki!

I don't like being at the edge of a precipice. I'm fine if there's a rail, or, like when I used to rock-climb, when I'm all roped into an anchor. Otherwise, let me stand at the back of the group, please!
