Anyway, I've got one pythagorean puzzle piece from the sewer, one happy mask (gotten by using the vase with water on the scale) and a honey pot which I think must be a secret.

I'm puzzled by that timed run in the upper part of town in which a block appears for a very short time but seems to lead nowhere.

That's it, that's all. I don't know what to do or where to go.

...
stuck there also...if it's a jump to the grape trellis there just doesn't seem enough time to do that :angry:

As long as I tried to do that "elegantly", as in with sprint-> runjump onto the raised block, roll and runjump to the trellis, I was not able to do that in time, somehow. :?

When I resorted to simple, "beginner-style" this was successful on the 1st or 2nd try - sprint all the way to the block, pull up, roll, runjump to the trellis. :)

Where (or, better said, how) do I go from here? I already got the secret on the other side of the room.

when I went through this room the first time I forgot that I had to repeat the exercise in order to pull the switch on the other side of the room. did you do both?

I don't know what switch you're referring to... :?

This is after placing the lyra upstairs.

lara's looking at one switch high up on the wall - there's another one just like it.

@ bene: I've been there and only two boulders fell for me too. I've been all over the room and no other boulders fall. Maybe the others aren't supposed to fall...

@ mugs: I see what you mean now. There's a platform below but it's still down. When I placed the lyra two platforms went up but that's how far I went.

And now... where to as I am stuck there

There's a crack on the wall at the end of that room, to the right.

There's another very weird thing upstairs, in the room with the axes and the darts, before the lyra: there are spikes by a column there on each side of the room. But if you go back to the lyra's room and - what do I know? - shoot the doors and hang from both sides, when you return the spikes are gone. Now, you can hang from the ledges where the spikes were and new spikes appear just below. Still there are other marked spaces below and you can't hang above them or jump above them as you'll surely get spiked. And nothing happens. Just a curiosity...

EDIT: All the spikes at ground level are up now and nothing happened. I hate red herrings.

You have to use the timed ring swith twice to reach two buttons that will open doors in the lyra room, when you finish in both rooms, you have to get back to the lava cave you came from....as a new route will be available there now.
The room with the spikes is just a way to get up to the lyre room, with extra's = balls and spikes.

I'd assumed that by now. But there's a platform for only one switch and even that one (in my picture) I have no idea how to go there.
