Iphigenia




I always wondered where Iphigenia, the daughter Agamemnon, had a worse deal. In Aulis or Tauride?
Only Limbolo could answer this question....By the way. The photos are of me drawing this picture in a Buenos Aires café inmortalised by Julio Cortazar in his novel "Los Premios".

Qué lindo boliche, carajo...dan ganas de quedarse a vivir en una de sus mesas. Ma-ra-vi-llo-so.
Jefe, sería tan amable de decirme dónde queda ese boliche y cómo se llama?
Gracias.

En cuanto a la dulce Ifigenia...dónde podría estar mejor que en mi rancho, tomando mate conmigo y diciendonos cositas lindas al oído a la sombra del alero..

En el espejo del fondo del boliche en cuestion dice el nombre, flanqueado por dos fotos de Cortazar, el "London City" de Avenida de Mayo, en Baires.
Casi tan lindo como "El Cairo" y su mesa de galanes. Tuve el honor de firmar el libroi de visitantes de el "Cairo".

Not to worry... way down on the horizon, I think I can see Orestes sailing to the rescue. (It's nice when a girl can depend on her brother.)
I think Robert Graves has her lashing shipwrecked sailors to death with willow sticks - the sailors would ejaculate just before expiring - so what goes around, comes around, as they say.

Thanks, Limbó...I am very relieved! Euripides or Christoph Willibald von Gluck will be eternally grateful for this information!

But Iphigenia was not sacrificed. She was transported to Tauras and an animal was sent in her place.

Did something terrible happen to her in the city on the Black Sea?

Oscar, uno recuerda que fue felíz entre las mesas de El Cairo de antes, el berreta que se caía a pedazos, lleno de mugre, con Moreira, Cachito y Chiche como maestros de bandeja. Otra cosa. Otro universo. No digo que el de ahora, el fashion, no sea lindo, que lo es, pero...será que el berreta es uno.
Gracias por el dato.

Yes, Crookie...A Scapegoat!
Didn't she have quite a good job by the seaside? I think that's where the shipwrecked saiors came in.

Later she got married to Achilles - a notable ass-kicker in his day.
Personally, I don't approve of kicking asses.

Yet some asses deserve a good kicking or two, Limbó.

I wouldn't dream of kickin' a mule, Oscar.

When I was very young there was a big, tawny pit mule, let to graze in a field behind our house. He chased only little boys and dogs. Little girls (my sisters) were left to wander in peace.
