It is years and years since I gave a moment's thought to Miss Delahay, my former teacher.
She taught me Latin and Greek Literature and introduced me to the Myths of Greece and Rome which she loved. Today, in the House of Dionysus
in Paphos I come face to face with those stories once again. However, they are being retold in pictures - every mosaic tells a story. Here are poor ill fated Pyramus and Thisbe, the fore runners of Romeo and Juliet. Here is Ganymede being carried off by an
Eagle God. The mosaics of Paphos are, in every sense of the word, fabulous.
We are still recovering from celebrating England's win in the footie last night. Michael's Bar was full of Belgians once again. We felt a bit guilty not to be
supporting them when they were supporting us - but they were playing Wales...
Anyway, due to feeling a trifle delicate, we decided not to pay a return visit to the Tombs of the Kings. I still remember Mr B's video of our last visit. "Here's
one old ruin visiting another old ruin," he commented cruelly.
You can probably tell that I still bear a grudge...
