Giorgi's Greek Tragedy

After the fall of Constantinople (present day Istanbul), the Ottoman Turkish Empire occupied Greece from 1453 to 1829. Set in the year 1790 in the Taygetos Mountains of the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece, the story recounts the tale of eleven-years-old Giorgi and his family. Elite agents of the Ottoman Sultan's Janissary Corps murder his parents and Giorgi longs for revenge. As teenagers, together with his younger brother Yianni, they leave their aunt's home and climb the higher, craggy mountains, seeking to join forces with their childhood hero and guerrilla leader, Kapetan Zaharias, and his outlawed Greek freedom fighters. Ensconced in deep caves, they live and train to battle the Turks.

 

 

 



Memoirs of an American Housewife in Japan

JapanBk

Pauline and her husband, Randy, lived in Naka, Japan from July 1994 to December 1996. Randy had been invited by the Japanese government to work on a multi-national project, and after much soul-searching, had accepted. They lived in housing designed for Westerners, and their neighbors included people from The European Union, Russia, Canada, Japan and America. Completely ignorant of complicated rules of Japanese social behavior, they committed many faux pas which Pauline humorously describes in her book.
