My first non gaming post in quite some time may bore some of you to tears!
Yes its some holiday snaps. and no there are none of me in my budgy smugglers!
The family and I went to Rhodes in Greece. I've never been so hot in my life!
The first few pics are of the acropolis in Lindos
A relief of a Rhodian trireme cut into the rock at the foot of the steps leading to the acropolis. On the bow stood a statue of General Hagesander, the work of the sculptor Pythokritos. The relief dates from about 180 BC.
It was a long bloody long walk up
I did quite fancy the donkey ride up, but when the guide saw the size of me in broken English he told me I'd be better off carrying the donkey up!
Th Acrpolis at Rhodes
The Palace of the Grandmaster of the Knights of Rhodes
Lacoon and his sons, being strangled by snakes,
Along the harbour we found an Arabian Tower
Medieval walls lining the harbour
Fort St Nicholas and lighthouse
Apparently where the Colossus of Rhodes stood at the mouth of the harbor
Hope I didn't bore you all too much!
