This Saturday a large group of CYA students were able to take a ferry ride over to the island of Aegina. We took the ferry out of Pireas (south Athens) and arrived at the island in about 45 minutes. While it used to be a rival city state to Athens, the island now houses a quiet community of fishermen and tourist industry related activities. During our visit we got to walk around the port city, sample some of the local seafood, and explore the ancient site of Kolona. As my first island trip in Greece, Aegina did not disappoint. It was nice to be able to explore the island with essentially no other tourists as I am sure that will not be the case later on in the semester.
