Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

That does look very pleasant... And I'm glad you are safely back home after many wanderings!


Looks delicious and homey! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip, and meetup with Marly.

How lovely! I can almost taste that bread!

wow! I knew leftover gazpacho for breakfast wasn't quite enough (blame the heat) and now I'm inspired...

That does look lovely, though I can never quite get used to cheese for breakfast, except Yvette's cream home made goat's cheese in Morlaix...

Welcome home!

Beautiful picture - something Vermeer-like about it. Delicious breakfast as well.
