"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Crossing The Phlegethon


Picture taken on the car-ferry between Oxford and St Michaels, Maryland, USA

The mythical ancient Greek River Phlegethon eternally burned, without ever being consumed.
The title of this post was changed from “Crossing the Styx”, after it was pointed out to me that the Styx is also known as the river of hate!

    Don’t do it, crossing the Styx leads you to the underworld, it is the river of hate.
