Kalithea is the beach where many locals like to gather every day and is probably my favourite place in Rhodes. The beach here is small and overcrowded in the middle of August, I couldn’t get a sunbed and swim in Kallithea beach but I enjoyed so much having a drink there.
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 package (10 Ounces) Mini Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
Small Chocolate Easter Eggs
Plastic Easter Eggs
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat, then add rice cereal and stir until well coated.
Lightly spray interior of the plastic eggs with non-stick cooking spray. If mixture is too sticky, you can also spray your hands. Fill both sides of the plastic egg with rice cereal mixture, slightly over-filling one side. Press chocolate egg in the center on one side of the egg, then close the plastic egg to shape it. (It should be full enough to meet with a little resistance as you close it.) Gently release the rice cereal egg from the mold, decorate with your choice of sprinkles and set aside in egg crate until set.
1. The pyramids of Giza were originally white and shiny.

We get so busy being amazed by the Pyramids, with their massive, meticulously layered sandy golden bricks, that we forget that what we’re seeing are the broken-down remnants. If you could see them new, you’d barely recognize them. They were much more awesome back then.
The Ancients loved color! Finding out about this is pretty great but I’m so used to white marbled statues it just doesn’t seem right to see them colored. I have seen so many exhibitions of Greek statues but I never never never even imagined any old sculpture being in color.
For centuries, we’ve assumed that the clean, white surfaces of ancient Greek sculptures were the standard of beauty; during the Renaissance, artists strove to emulate this simple aesthetic in their own art. Even today, we expect truly beautiful classical and ancient art to be pure and unadorned – but Vinzenz Brinkmann and Ulrike Koch-Brinkmann have spent over two decades proving us wrong.
I have collected 10 different and fun ways to color your eggs for a fresh Spring table. Enjoy!
1. Foiled Eggs
Who knew the fabled golden egg could look so cool! Colorfully dyed eggs get a bit of bling from gold or copper foil, and while the look is luxe, the foil is surprisingly affordable. Also the copper is one the most popular trends in decoration since last year.
The picturesque authentic village of Lindos is an absolute must-see when you visit Rhodes. Located 45 km away from Rhodes town, in a wonderful private golf with fabulous sandy beaches.
