Turkey and Greece - April 18th, 2010

Many islands are visible off the coast of Turkey, although despite their close proximity to that nation, most belong to Greece. The largest visible here is the island of Rhodes.

It is the largest of the Dodecanese group, Greece, and the most easterly in the Aegean Sea, separated from Turkey by the Strait of Marmara. The 540-sq-mi (1,398-sq-km) island is traversed northwest-southeast by hills that reach 3,986 ft (1,215 m) in the summit of Atáviros.
