Day VIII: Ancient Rhodes city:

Last day, because of our delay of the flight we got some extra hours. We want to stay close to the hotel and just take a new walk to old town.

Map over the eighth day walk:

(5 km walk in ancient Rhodes city.)

When we walked down to old town we passed this orchestra, don't know if they celebrated something special today. We enjoyed the musicand stayed here a couples of minutes and listening.

The first thing we wanted to do was to examine the Temple of Aphrodite once again.

It's placed just inside the Liberty Gate. We try to figure out how all these stones were placed once. Do you think we have boring time? Oh no, this is exiting!

Back to the hotel, we don't have any room now and take a rest in the foyer. At 11 pm we took the bus to the airport, we got a dinner at the airport while we waiting. We was back home in Stockholm about 6 am.

This week at Rhodes has been great, and maybe we come back in September or October and have a visit to the Astronomy Cafe, then we stay over night and try to take same astronomy photographs.
