Gythion, Rhodes, and Patmos, Greece

 

 Gythion is great for a stroll.

 

Rhodes is a big tourist port these days.

 

 

 

It is beautiful, full of history, and has a famous synagogue. This island has extra special meaning as many of my friends and even relatives descend from the Rhodes Jewish Community.

 

 

Not to give short shrift to my Christian friends, next came Patmos, called the Jerusalem of The Aegean because it is where St. John wrote the Book of Revelation. We visited the cave where he wrote it in 95.

 

 

Also we visited The Holy Monastery of the Apocalpse built 1,000 years later as a castle and religious center. It is still active today.

 

It’s always nice to watch some local dancing.
