Beautiful Lindos...

...with its beautiful medieval walls which enclose the remains of the acropolis dedicated to Athena, goddess of wisdom, of household arts and crafts, of spinning and weaving, of textiles. Inventor of the flute, the plough and the ox-yoke, the horse bridle and the chariot. Athena, goddess of war, guardian of Athens, the city named for her; defender of heroes, and of justice.

Your post reads like epic poetry.
May those gods bless Athena for all she did (does?).
Such a beautiful place, with a happy juxtaposition of medieval and modern.

And the beach also looks quite inviting.

Just catching up with your beautiful Greek photos, after a bout of bronchitis. Feeling slightly more human today.

Loved seeing Lindos through your eyes. It looks so beautiful. Adore the dog, of course.

is Greece on the euro? if not, how does their cost of living compare to the US? Inotherwords, is a holiday there reasonable?
