Rhodes, northern beach on the windy, west side.
Over 2,000 years ago an earthquake shook and destroyed the ancient wonder of Colossus. I saw this article written in 2015 which claims architects are planning to reconstruct it, 3x larger than the original. You can read The Telegraph article HERE
Now a stag and doe stand where once straddled the Greek titan-god of the sun Helios, by Chares of Lindos in 280 BC.
Walking on the west side, select a spot on uncrowded beaches.
The east side has the resorts and the touristy areas. This picture is on the west side, and its villages and beaches are uncommercialized. I think it’s because it’s too windy to swim calmly, yet, this is the side I’d easily spend a summer hanging out with the locals.
I could spend weeks on Rhodes. We only caught a glimpse of her beauty. Which picture do you like best?
