The story of the fall of a republic in one horrible day
If you are following my account of a recent ten day cruise my husband Bill and I took last month, you will know we started from Grand Rapids Gerald Ford International Airport, to Detroit, to Amsterdam to Rome and from there had a day at sea. We chose this trip because all but one day featured a stop in the Mediterranean. Our first stop at a port was the Greek city of Mykonos, and we chose to start with a day trip to the island ruin of Delos.
Delos is both an island and, according to some Internet accounts, unsurpassed on the planet as a natural insular archeological site in size and importance as well as the world’s premier source of monumental antiquities. We had a guide of Delos.
