Kos according to Ellen

For years at a stretch I visit Samos, the island to which I have lost my heart. I finally convinced myself this summer to also visit other islands. We went to Kos (Tigaki). It was okay, but too touristic for me and I really missed the authentic Greece. The beach at Tigaki was not for me, too busy. It was a sandbeach, but with seaweeds, very shallow (too undeep over a long distance), food on the beach, people bringing around donuts, Chinese masseurs walking around.

I prefer the more typical Greek taverna's in a quiet village where food is prepared with a feeling. I also like to take a look at escavations. This was good on the island of Kos, these escavations, but unfortunately I didn't very often get the feeling of atmosphere. I only had that at the deserted Byzantine city of Agio Pyli and in the Asclepeion. There I got a kind of mystical feeling and you could imagine how the people have lived there.
