Euboia, Chalkis and Around
(Evia, Halkinda)
Euboia/Halkinda Info Euboia Photos, Part 1

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, .
