Recently King Minos sent out a notice: there are now four hundred citizens of the Minoan Empire. I am happy to hear the news, and I hope for a prosperous future for the Empire.
If you've not visited, I hope you will. The land and the city are beautiful, and the residents welcoming and friendly. Come see the museum, the temples, the beach, and the chariot races. Try your hand at bull jumping. I think you'll be impressed.
UPDATE: If, as I hope, you've followed the link to the page about bull jumping, do look at the rest of the site. It's well worth your while.
