Photographer's Note

A photo taken 2 days later in Rhodes of our terrace.
This cloud of smoke also comes from forest fires in Turkey, Antalya and Marmaris.

Of course, life did not stop in Rhodes either. At around 7 o'clock on Sunday morning, the chair in the room began to sway a little below us. It was a weird feeling.
It turned out that not far from Nisiros (the island is of Vucal origin, the tourist attraction in the crater to this day to bake eggs), there was a 5.8 magnitude underwater quake, which was also felt in Rhodes.
To make us feel like a disaster tourist, a forest fire broke out, 14 kilometers southwest of Rhodes Town, near the island’s only power plant. We were also able to follow the lights of this after dark.

Meanwhile, due to an electrical short circuit while extinguishing the fire, at 4 p.m., power went out over the entire island. This thing lasted 8 hours. Dinner time has fallen, but the restaurants are closed. He who did not eat before him was hungry. Some of the larger hotels had backup power supplies, there was electricity. Wax candles were found in the other accommodations. It was cozy.
Of course, the internet service was also suspended until morning.

So, to relax, we went to the Grand Master’s Palace last night to watch an evening Teodorakis concert. The performance was good, but the many dramatic songs didn’t make us too happy.

I wonder today, as the island will surprise us :-)

In WS, I attach 2 more photos.
