A Stairway on the Isle of Rhodes

Stairway to Heaven

This picture was taken in a village on the isle of Rhodes. I went there back in 2009 on a cruise and I then went on a tour of Rhodes. This village was what most of American’s think of when they think of a Greek village. Every building was white, blue roofs, and the streets were basically passageways where people walked from home to shop etc. I didn’t see one car in this village, but I did see mopeds. This stairway amazed me because I watched an elderly woman walk up those stairs with 2 bags filled with what I assumed was produce. I was totally amazed how quickly this woman maneuvered up the stairs, like she was still a kid. Well she didn’t move that fast but fast enough. She seemed to be in good health and I suspect it is because being Greek, she ate a typical Greek diet which is far healthier than what we (American’s) consume.
As I walked around this village I kept thinking how cool it would be to live here for awhile. I wouldn’t want to spend the rest of my life there, but it would be interesting to live in a place like that for 6 months to a year. It’s not an easy thing to live in another country by yourself, but I would be willing to give it another shot on the Isle of Rhodes.
