This island in the wine-dark sea is one of the most beautiful in all of Korinthia. Its taverns provide carousing and debauchery for all. #travel #history https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/greece/mykonos.html?s=mc

The #Jenin Refugee Camp was established by persons coming from Haifa and whereabouts, who fled or were expelled by Zionist forces during and in the aftermath of the 1948 Palestine War.

The camp has since become a stronghold of militants. It was the location of several occupation incidents, most notably the 2002 entry by the Israel military, and the 2022 killing of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. It remains the site of frequent clashes between Israeli forces & the residents. 🧵

The realm of Korinthia includes many islands scattered in a sun-drenched wine-dark sea. Ships are plentiful and cheap, and their captains are, for the most part, honest. Much carousing and debachery await! https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/greece/ferries.html?s=mc
