Scenery Sunday : Rhodes Island, Greece

On the cusp of my return to Turkey, I’m traveling in Rhodes or Rodos. It is one of the Greek islands that offer direct ferries to cross the border into Turkey.

This island not only boasts Byzantine walls and Greek ruins but a medieval fortress and Turkish remnants. Walking down narrow paths and alleyways bring unexpected surprises.

Once a moat is now a green pathway

Nature witnesses all that humans have done

Preservation of the past

Past. Present. Future.
