Corfu, Day 10 [Oct. 27th, 2008|04:44 pm]

The island of Corfu is all the way up the western coastline of Greece, and you can even see Albania from it’s shores. It is also supposedly where Odysseus’ ship was petrified, mere yards from returning to port. While here we visited a working monastery (where Amanda was stung by a bee.. ask her about it sometime), the old town (complete with a reproduction of the Rue di Rivoli), and a small seaside town. Not in that order. We also saw some of the best Byzantine art and Orthodox icons of the whole trip. Of note to me were the icons of St. George and the Dragon, something I would expect more in England than in Greece.
