Xenia, on a choppy day

Xenia, on a choppy day

Strong winds and a choppy sea drive the water-carrying ship 'Xenia' much closer to the shores of Ischia than usual.

She's on her way from Naples to delivery fresh water to the Pontine islands - Ventotene and Ponza.

Xenia (Greek: ξενία, xenía) is the Greek concept of hospitality, or generosity and
courtesy shown to those who are far from home.
It is often translated as "guest-friendship" (or "ritualized friendship") because the rituals of hospitality
created - and expressed - a reciprocal relationship between guest and host.
