Cruise to Greece, Lovely, lovely Lindos (Part One)

We bought a guided tour to Lindos for our day on Rhodes. It was an especially good deal because the Israeli guide took all the Hebrew speakers from the bus and we (J.O.B.E.Y.) shared the local guide, Christina with one other person. It was like a personal tour to the Acropolis of Lindos.

First, we drove through the town of Rhodes:

Part of the old city.

A building in the old city, across from the marina.

The possible location of the Colossus of Rhodes.

Then, out to the countryside. Rhodes is beautiful, with lovely beaches and craggy hills.

E.'s peeps are in there!!!

Sleepy boys.

Feeling peachy!

We arrived outside of the village of Lindos and took a shuttle to the square.

This is the view from where the bus dropped us off.

Smiling on the crowded shuttle bus. J.'s super creepy stalker was standing right in front of me. Yewch.

We walked through the village and up to the Acropolis on the hill behind the village.

The ladies of the village try to sell mass-produced embroidered tablecloths on the path  to the Acropolis

B. is not pleased with having his picture taken.

Stay tuned for Part Two: The Acropolis!
