The sun arrived!! Today was spent completely in Rhodes
. I don't know if it was the sun but this was one of my favourite islands (maybe it was also because I had just come from boring Patmos). It had interesting sites, nice scenery and sun! There are olive trees everywhere too. We first went to the Acropolis in Lindos
, another beautiful ancient site, with an amazing landscape. And the water was so blue! It was only 9:00am but I got a tiny sunburn. This trip keeps reminding me how Canadian I am. After taking about 50 pictures, we went back to Old Town, a medieval fortified town where people still live today. But again there are way too many cars for such small streets. I tried a bit of shopping, but at this point I had seen enough shops all selling the same things and I could get free food and drinks on the ship so I enjoyed the sun on the deck. I hate browsing when I don't have money to spend. Dressed up for the captains cocktail party tonight (I was happy I got to wear the dress I brought, I was worried it would sit in my bag this whole trip) and it was a sad attendance. Pretty much just people from my age group showed up. I guess we just can't pass up free drinks. Then we stayed out late partying with the terrible kareoke singers (and they didn't get better this time around). It was a great night. Never under estimate the power of kareoke to bring people of all sorts together (and, well, alcohol too).
