Steve Vaccarezza – What I did on my Summer vacation
Steve showed slides of four Greek islands that he and Dona visited – Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, and Rhodes. He started with a map of the Eastern Mediterranean giving us a short Greek history in the early centuries AD, and said he missed Tas Tousimis’s filling in the gaps of Greek history. They visited Santorini Island where there was a volcanic eruption 3600 years ago. (Carla said she and David had also visited there). On Rhodes you could ride a donkey up to the Castle of Knights of St. John on the Acropolis where there is a medieval town with vary narrow street about ten feet wide. They visited the Palace of the Grand Masters on Patmos Island where in the Book of Revelations Christ spoke to John through a crack in the roof.
