“20000 Leagues Under the Sea” Part2 Ch06

Question 1: When is it unbearable to be a prisoner?  Why was Ned Land more aware of his captivity than the others?  Would they have been further deprived of their remaining liberties if they attempted an escape and failed?

Question 2: Who controls Candia, the ancient isle of Crete today?  When was it ruled by the Turks?  How was their rule despotic?

Question 3: Was the overflow of the Nile predictable after the arrival of sea-bream in this Egyptian river?  How regular was the flooding of the Nile and how did this benefit its ancient inhabitants?  Does the Nile river still flood?
