Athens was NEVER the centre of Mycenean civilization, although it has been continually inhabited for about 5000 years

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel NOT the area called Palestine. In 1948 it was taken over by the Jordanians and Jews weren't allowed onto their holiest sites. In 1967 Israel took back the whole city and people of all religions are free to visit most areas.

The Earth is beautiful. Unfortunately, peoples are forced to habitats in controlled spaces. I am not interested in outer space. There is so much space on Earth.

Have been to Athens a couple of times, and went to Lebanon in 1969.between two periods of conflict. Am off to Morocco in a couple of weeks, but only to Casablanca. No time to visit the beautiful blue city unfortunately.
