Outside the city walls, Rhodes

Our 7am ferry is cancelled… Bad weather they say as we stare at the calm sea ahead of us. Oh. The 2pm is cancelled too. So we settle in for another day in Rhodes! We venture out of the city walls, heading towards the city ‘centre’ which most road signs point to. It’s very odd,…
