Chios is the birthplace of Steve's parents and it was the first island we visited. At first the island seems to have very little character but I soon discoverd its beauty. It has a nice harbour, good beaches and attractions just a few miles away. We rented a car and drove all over town (crazy traffic). We found Steve's parents old home, it has been bought and it is being remodeled. We went to Mesta, Piryi and Olimbi. Mesta is a medieval town, very interesting.
