The walled citadel of Rhodes is one of the best preserved Medieval towns in Europe, as well the oldest continuously inhabited one. In 1988 it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To enter these walls through one of the gates is entering another world... where spirits of the Knights, of its Ottoman past and the Jewish heritage coexist alongside the modern, vibrant present which has made this fascinating labyrinth of alleys and little squares a mesmerizing world one has to experience so as to believe it. And the only way is... getting "lost" in these narrow alleys where times seems to stand still.

Here I am... as "happy as an Easter" as we say in Italian... on my beloved Island and with my Special One, and enjoying this soft, magical, sweet atmosphere that one can enjoy only off-season.
Today it's been cloudy and we had some rain, but the temperature is still mild and the light is wonderful! I wish I was a painter, because the colors and light when the sun shines from the clouds or in-between the clouds are just amazing, and photographs cannot do them any justice.
