Ahhhlmond blossom


Who said news agency stuff is boring. Stravaraland's purveyor of truths, half-truths, presidential itineraries, Jimmy's hotel room information and some fine poetic sentiment had this on offer today:
Σε πλήρη ανθοφορία βρίσκονται οι αμυγδαλιές στο κατεχόμενο χωριό Παλαίκυθρο μετατρέποντας τον κάμπο της Μεσαορίας σε πανέμορφο τοπίο, Δευτέρα 26 Φεβρουαρίου 2007.

Το κορίτσι της φωτογραφίας μας, η Δήμητρα με άνθη της αμυγδαλιάς από την αυλή της γιαγιάς στο Κατεχόμενο Χωριό.
And our translation:
Young Demetra went over to her grandmother's village in the Messaoria plain where, in the occupied village of Palaikythro, the almond trees were in full bloom.

Demetra then proceeded to locate her grandmother's house and made straight for the family almond tree (also under occupation) and brutally tore off a branch. She then twisted the branch, completely ignoring its plea for mercy. After she tortured the branch to death she put it on her head and had a picture taken.

i somehow got the subliminal message: "don't worry unsubjugated cypriot folk--just as the almonds blossom in our occupied lands, so will freedom someday for our people and our country. just look at this karakaksa--drink coca cola--that had her picture taken spontaneously and with--drink coca cola--no make up on. seriously!"

Why would the cna advertise coca cola in such a devious way! i feel violated.

Tha parw mian aniforia,

Stin Mesarka the na stathw,

Είπα στη μυγδαλιά:
Αδελφή, μίλα μου για το θεό.

Κι η μυγδαλιά άνθισε.
