I am aware that it has been long time since my first message. Sorry for that! I will try to talk about my life here in
Turks and Greeks! We were living (and Armenian, Jewish, Kurdish...etc. but here I will talk about only Turks and Greeks) almost 450 years together. And as a result, we have many common things: words, swear words, foods and also traditions which are good up to not to make political issues over them. I remember every time I was coming to
These kinds of conversations made me feel terribly uncomfortable because they were putting me – maybe unconsciously - in a defence situation that also I did not believe in that food has to have a "nationality'. And of course it was not nice to have an argument with them if you were a guest in a country and planning to live there in the future and see those people around you.
Back then, when Ottoman people invented these foods or whatever they were, we were members of the same society and we were sharing the same culture. Thus, it is ridiculous for me to say they are ours or they are yours. And the most funny things were that they had Turkish names like imambayildi, baklava, kazandibi, tavukgogsu…etc.
Anyway, these foods and the other things, they are delicious and I am happy to share with any nation
Coming up... next message…shortly:
Now we started to talk about foods, I have to mention about the biggest main difference between us. Turkish people are TEA addicted, Greek people are COFFEE addicted.
