Pole to Pole
Day 48: Rhodes
'Why so early?'
'Best time. Before the streets get busy.'
Vangelis Pavlides, a political cartoonist and local historian, has agreed to be my host in Rhodes. He appears on his vintage BMW motorbike and we grab some fresh bread from a local bakery before taking a walk round the Old Town. Vangelis is a good companion. He loves the city, though not uncritically. In his opinion it had a better sewage system 400 years before Christ than it does now. It also had a population of 300,000, now shrunk to 80,000.
