And his quirky, funny story below about — well, I can’t quite say what it’s about — a kind of Alice in Wonderland walkabout through Karamanlı Cappadocia and his own life, which, I’m sorry, is just too idiomatic and full of delightful Greco-Turkisms for me to find time to translate now…that is, if it is even remotely translatable.  But it manages, in its absurdist glee,  to be a hundred times more devastating a slap at the statelet’s bourgeoisie (“glorious Yunanistan” he calls it) than even my most vitriolic posts. 

More power to you Γλυκέ μας.

Greek-readers enjoy:
