Our first stop after leaving Rhodes on the Calisto was the island of Symi. Also, it was the most difficult hike of the trip. Nine hundred steps up through the city of Agios Emilianos, then climbing up a goat path, across the top of the island, and (finally) descending to Pedi where the Calisto had moved to meet us.
