Nausicaa (in Greek Ναυσικά, her name literally means “burner of ships” (… well, that’s a bit weird) is another character of Homer’s Odyssey. She was a princess of Phaeacia, last destination of Odysseus 10-year journey (remember, he needed another 10-year to finally arrived in Ithaca). Nausicaa helped Odysseus by providing him clothes (He was naked…but that’s another story!), food and drink. To avoid any rumours lest they are seen together, she counseled him to go alone to the palace of her father Alcinous and to ask for hospitality. While at Alcinous court Odysseus recounted much of what had happened to him during these past few years and the King provided him a new ship. According to Aristotle, Nausicaa later married Telemachus the son of Odysseus!
In the village pattern is a poetic ballad with swallows flying around the whitewashed village in a joyful dance, with pelicans wandering in small alleys leading to the port and colourful ships waiting for their passengers. It’s springtime, animals are strolling outside, flowers are blooming and the sun is warming up announcing the coming summer!
