15. Rhodes, Greece

Rhodes, Greece

Greece again. This time I get flip flop from my best friend M, she gave me him in June. Rhodes is an Greek island located in the eastern Aegean Sea. Rhodes' nickname is 'The Island of the Knights'. Historically this island was famous worldwide for the Colossus of Rhodes (that gold monument on this flip flop) which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Colossus was a statue of the Greek Titan Helios destroyed during the earthquake of 226 BC. Nowadays modern bronze deer statues (also on flip flop) stand in Mandraki harbor, where the Colossus may have stood.
