As I am preparing myself for a brief visit, I thought perhaps some may appreciate this little thing from my friend Artun.

Welcome back, Lordo.

Why don’t you stick around for a while.

No idea what the video was all about. Can you give a brief explanation for the non Greek speakers?

He's comparing Cypriots to “golotzia”. In GC lingo “golotzia” means gourds, zucchinis, pumpkins, and others in that family of vegetables.

Kolozes are Zucchinis. Like our Kologasi is the best; of course there are kologeros too, but that's a different story.

...nice one Lordo, always the best.

Thanks for the Turkish version Lordo.

At a closer observation, the Turkish version is twice as long as the Greek version! :wink:

The GC version does not have the full story, it starts from the moment he says I wrote something 2 years ago. So you are correct that GC version starts about half way which makes the TC version twice as long.

Looking for a new car, I thought I’d let email do the walking by typing out my tech needs and then emailing it to about a dozen brands to see what they have on offer.

Knowing that CY showrooms would probably understand Greek better, I figured I’d put my “Personal Text Translator” to good use so I confidently started typing away when I decided to take a look at the output...

Sometimes you can call your wife a kologouie.. for instance you can use it in a sentence “ Ra ma eisai telia kologouie?”
