Greek Erotica

Daphnis & Chloe

Daphnis & Chloe

Aayushi in India sent me this R-rated painting postcard of Daphnis and Chloe. It truly is an awful postcard. It depicts the 2 lovers, from a greek erotic romance novel from the 2nd century, Daphnis and Chloe. At least the blue in the postcard is stunning. I always love getting these postcards “that nobody else wanted” from people abroad. Awful postcards are absolutely awesome! At very least it’s a painting and not a photo! Thank you Aayushi!

From the Home of the Nymphs

Melissani Cave

Antigone from the historical city of Thebes sent me this lovely postcard of Melissani Cave on the island of Kefalonia. Antigone tells me that she spent her summer holidays here and enjoyed a great deal of wine there! Sounds like my kind of person! Wine and a stunning Greek island, is that not just life? What more could anybody want? Or maybe I am just an alcoholic! But hey, fun has always been fun! Anyway, back to the postcard! According to Greek mythology, this was the home of the nymphs. I dunno why nobody was never curious enough to go and look for these nymphs, but at any rate, I love this postcard!
