But it wasn’t until he added a Grivas section that business really picked up… :?

I wonder if he had Yorgagis, Papadopuolos and Sampson in his inventory? Come on Kicks, the suspense is killing me....how did you survive in this ruthless jungle :?: :lol:

Ahhh you mean the "member's only" areas!

I had to dig deep to find a picture of his work shoes...

Here's a guess: He was at a Government job, something to do with the lakes. Both SF and Geneva have a lot.

Here is my take on Kikapu.

He sees the big picture with regard to Cyprus. He knows that the island is doomed if it remains partitioned and if Turkey doesn't get the hell out of Cyprus so that a unified Cyprus can proceed for the benefit of Cypriots.

He lived in US and now in Switzerland so his views are more refined than those who have remained on the small island.

I do envy Kikapu for his choice of countries to be at. I love both the US and Switzerland. You are also lucky to be in Australia Paphitis. I could live in any one of those places.

Ok that's one more way to make it.

But there are some other cousins that were born there, all with varying degree of successes. They all work, and own property and doing ok for themselves. They are typical Americans with Cypriot Greek names.

And overall just very nice people. Americans are very polite.

Quite frankly you are the first person I ever heard saying the Americans are polite. Just wait until you meet the trash of Americans and be called names you never heard of. And there's a lot of trash in America, judging from what we had in the company I was working for in the Gulf, and from what we watch on TV. Any of your Kids or you have a dark skin?

I think it is very easy for an Aussie to live in America and vice versa for a Yank to live in Australia. As long as you can adapt to the lifestyle. East Coast Australia is very much very similar to West Coast America (California).

Well that's obvious isn't it?
I personally like his "fresh air" in the forum.

Btw many TCs who live in the occupied do have the same views. The masses though got confused as the ones who rule over there, somehow made them believe all their problems would be solved if they 'd get recognition, and that it's the "Greeks" fault for stealing the RoC from them.

I rate them as being polite. They are not arrogant at all. In fact, they can even be a bit naive.

I think they are more polite than Australians. If you ask them something, they will bend backwards.

I think people say they are quite loud but that isn't impoliteness. It's just the way they are are. And once they start, its hard to get them to stop. Some people find that annoying, but what it is is them being polite and trying to engage you in conversation because they want to learn about you and they generally are interested especially if you are foreign.

The other thing is this Pyro. America has thrived with immigration from other countries. Migrants made America and were important for its development.

Mots young Cypriots I know, end up doing Government jobs, professors at Universities or doctors. The UK may still be an exception mostly because the British are more welcoming and also because of the numbers of Cypriots already living there.
Most Greeks I know living in the US just own pizza shops!

Kikapu may I ask what kind of job you were doing in SF? I don't mean the exact description only whether you were working in the public sector or the private one, or perhaps a subsidiary of a Swiss company.


Pyro,

I have always been in the private sector, both in the USA and Switzerland, and no Swiss subsidiaries in the USA.

I did work in the public sector in the UK from 1975-1979.

First generation immigrants to the USA do not have many opportunities unless they have special skills, especially if they do not speak the English language well, but they do all make a living one way or the other. However, second generation on, they have the same opportunities as anyone else as they are very integrated to the American way of life, as this practice has been going for decades. Second + generation “immigrants” are truly Americans first and parents land as second.

West coast and East coast is where most immigrants from Europe and Asia tend to settle as they have a large communities from those part of the world. Chicago is home to large Irish community. South and Central Americans tend to settle along the southern borders of the USA, places like California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Not all first generation immigrants are treated equally in the USA, but by far, San Francisco on the West Coast and New York and Boston on the East Coast are the most accepting of first generation immigrants.
