Today we ventured out from Rhodes Town on a boat trip to Lindos (if you expand the map you will see the route)
Lindos is a picturesque village built on a steep slope and wholly populated by people selling tat. Except during the daytime, when it also has thousands of people looking at tat. And, one assumes, occasionally buying tat.
At the top of the hill is an acropolis. The guidebook says it is a long hot and arduous climb. However, it is made easier if you sit on one of the many donkeys. Di, being vegetarian, objected to doing this. I pointed out that eating the donkey was by no means compulsory and, giving regard to the complete absence of eg 4 legged aubergines to sit on, we were stymied.
Fortunately we knew something that our ship mates didn't - the acropolis was shut. We had seen a sign yesterday indicating that no Greek monuments and museums open on Mayday. So we sat near the beach eating mezes and drinking beer. Far more sensible!Read more
