S M F G · A Counter-Clockwise Trip Around The World


Sep 22nd 2008

At the beginning of the Nineties, we used to play a quite popular board game: Trivial Pursuit.

I remember a day, playing in Ally’s kitchen, when the question « Who is the father of all turks? » panicked most of us. And then somebody — with the beginning of a smile sprouting from his lips — said this single word: « Atatürk? »

Many years passed, and eventually I have an answer for that: reincarnation!

Further proofs of this theory here.

    Your Turkish influence is growing stronger…. or is it the memory of your old friends which is growing stronger?
