Being a beginner at blogging, I'm following the "one thing leads to another " method of deciding subject matter. Yesterday's Bardakci Bay leads to the myth of Hermes and Aphrodite's offspring, Hermaphroditus. This beautiful young man was bathing in the pool of sweet water at Bardakci, when the water nymph Salamacis tried to seduce him. So angry was she when he refused her advances that she flung herself into the pool and wrapped herself around him, calling on the gods to join them together for eternity. Thus the first Hermaphrodite was created just outside Bodrum  The story goes that any man bathing in this pool will be feminised.  Guys, have been warned
