Aegean Day 3


greek spiney spurgevenice 630After a “scenic crossing to the sacred island of Patmos”, and lunch, we donned our “stout shoes or walking boots” and trekked to the top of the island through thistle-laden fields and paths lined by a round sticker bush (Greek Spiny Spurge – not my photo) that does for thorns what Ai Weiwei did for stools in his sculpture at the Biannale in Venice. We viewed a few stones still making up Roman walls of the acropolis as well as the entire island and about six other islands in gradated shades of blue-gray, the air was so clear, the islands so close together.


E took a group photo – I must get a copy, but here is my “group shot”. I thought that I was in pretty good shape, what with my daily aerobics, but the hike (a mere 880 ft above sea level) had me huffing and puffing.
