Strait of Euripus

In Apollinaire’s poem, “Le Voyageur,” hé writes, “La vie est variable aussi bien que l’Euripe.”

l’Euripe (Euripus) is a strait in Greece where the current changes FOUR TIMES A DAY. Small boats can’t make it through, and the passage is not wide enough for very big boats. And even if you can get a boat through, you have to be careful because there is a high risk of VORTEX FORMATION.

Hydrology, man.
