[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Taken during our third day in Kish Island. Had an opportunity to spend Eid break with my wife in the island, just in time with my UAE visa cancellation. We took a 2-hour tour on coach & happened to pass this side of the island where the old floating Greek ship is settled.

No PP except resizing for TL.

Brief History:

Kish Island has been mentioned in history variously as Kamtina, Arakia, Arakata, and Ghiss. In 325 BC, Alexander the Great commissioned Niarkus to set off an expedition voyage into the Sea of Oman and the Persian Gulf. Niarkus's writings on Arakata is the first known mention of Kish Island in antiquity.[1] When Marco Polo visited the Imperial court in China, he commented on the Emperor's wife pearls, he was told that they were from Kish.[2] In the 1970s the last Shah of Iran turned the island into a luxury resort for the international elite complete with a Grand Casino (now closed) and an airport designed to handle the Concorde. After the Islamic Revolution, Kish Island became a duty-free shopping center.
