There was an interesting mini-ecosystem in the freshwater spring of Arethusa, complete with palm trees, fish, and geese! One wonders how such a diverse assortment of creatures ended up in the same tiny pool, located between a dirty city and the salty ocean. Maybe some nymphs were involved.
Meanwhile, in the heart of the city, an old temple of Apollo served as a playground for a delightful cat. Fur of black, heart of gold.
