GREEK ISLANDS, RHODES AND KOS.

Lovely Islands off the Turkish Coast.

I took the ferry from Piraeus, on the mainland Greece. Sailing through the night ,and arriving early morning
{6-30} in Rhodes Town...Ferry was Blue Star. Rhodes Island is beautiful,i travelled in the month of May.----Rhodes Old Town is enclosed by a massive stone wall, 12m thick. Old Town is sort of divided into three parts,in medieval times the Knights of St.John lived in the Knights Quarter.----The Mandraki Harbour is guarded by the St. Nicolas Fortress.and the Rhodian Deer Pillar.
A public bus was useful for a trip to Lindos. Lindos is 47km from Rhodes Town.A steep path took me down to the beach.There are donkey rides.up the hill. History says St. Paul landed here on his way to Rome. GREECE  RHODES.   .Fortress and Rhodian Deer. in Mandroki Harbour.
