Euboia is technically Greece's second
largest island, behind
Crete. However it is, at some points a mere
20 feet from the main land of
Greece. Its proximity to the main
land does lead to an interesting phenomena. Because of the location
of the island, tides and the prevailing winds, the current between the
island and the main land change directions several times a day. It
is said that Aristotle, upon observing this phoneme and not being able
to explain it hurled him self into the current to his death. (In
Reality Aristotle did die in Halkinda.)
The town itself is a typical little town and
not really interesting. However, Evia,
and the coastline around it is quite beautiful. These pictures from
around that area. The area is also known to be a vacation spot for rich Athenians... I.E. they sometimes will have a second house around here.
I hope you enjoy the photos. Any comments, please E-mail me, .
