Old Town, Rhodes

Today we meandered around Old Town, Rhodes. It is a walled city, much like a fortress, and really quite pretty. I would have to say it is a little more Turkish than Greek, as there were several mosques but I only remember one actual church. Mostly there was just taverns, where we had fantastic gyros, and shopping, especially for linens. They had some really gorgeous silk beaded bedcovers, which I swooned over, but at 520 US Dollars, alas, I had to leave them behind. Boys - meaning Doug and Addie - look out...we bought yuou guys a little gift here in town. Crossbows and Catapults can return to full swing.
Tomorrow we are in Cyprus for only a few hours, and then it is off to Cairo, our last stop. Still no free internet, so still no pics, but I will do what I can, when I can. Until then...
