The otherworldly cave that was hidden for thousands of years
Exactly 70 years ago, one of Europe’s best-kept secrets was uncovered

I didn’t know what the colour blue really looked like until September this year. I had an idea from seeing, you know, the sky, blueberries, the Greek national flag and so forth. But it was only when the sun projected a heavenly beam into the cool waters in Kefalonia’s Melissani Cave that I witnessed blue in its truest, Platonic form.

There were six others in my rowing boat, including a guide, and I counted a similar number on a few other boats which, due to the clarity of the cave’s water, did not seem to float so much as hang suspended in mid air.

Most of it you'll already know if you're a Kef aficionado, but an interesting read nevertheless.
