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.

Kia ora Beth,
So vast and wonderful. Happy to read you could not resist the allure to stop and absorb.

Thanks for the video. It gave a sense of what it must be like to stand there (I guess).
For this kind of landscape I'd endure the cold. I really would! ;-)

Icelandic FAQs. How fast may I drive? Very fast but you'll have to guess where you're going.

New addition to Slender Volumes series(Great Belgian Humourists, Hitler's Table Talk, Berlusconi on Marriage, etc): Iceland's Architectural Triumphs.

I can't compare it to any landscape I've ever seen. Unless I go there, I'll have to imagine the scale, I guess.
