I’ve spent the last couple weeks stuck in my office grading papers. It’s not like I’m dying to be outside as after a brief sign that we might be getting spring here in Toronto, winter returned – complete with frigid temperatures and snow!
So when this postcard arrived of an exotic, tropical beach getaway in Greece – I was not eager to follow my usual practice of putting new arrivals on our fridge. Unlike the Greek tragic figure Tantalus, I am not going to be endlessly tormented by pleasures that are denied me.
Here’s the backside:
“We rented an adorable little cottage directly on – and I mean on – the beach in Damouhari, the village where a lot of Mamma Mia was filmed. It’s very remote – takes 30 minutes to drive from the main road through the Pelion. In a potential postcard first, the house we rented is the one the front of this card.”
I don’t see the house – just a bizarre phallus temple. Either way, it’s a helluva lot nicer than ever-winter Toronto.
