Thanksgiving #2 (near the dead zone)

November 27th, 2011

Saturday night at a party hosted by one of the Fulbright scholars, I met Yiannis Papadakis, author of Echoes from the Dead Zone: Across the Cyprus Divide (London: I.B. Tauris, 2005). Lynne and I enjoyed talking with him. His book is the most helpful work on the Cyprus problem that I have read. While conducting his research, Yiannis lived in Greece, Turkey, and both north and south Cyprus. He became friends with people in a variety of communities and listened to their stories about how they have suffered because of the actions of their enemies (or trouble-making cousins). His book recounts many of those stories–a fascinating read that provides windows into the difficulties of people looking honestly at their own contributions to problems.

Here are a few photos of the Thanksgiving dinner that Lynne and I hosted at CAARI. A student here from Philadelphia took the pictures and shared them with me.

Lynne's deviled eggs were a hit.

This farm turkey was running around several days prior to Thanksgiving. His wing muscles are more developed that our store turkeys--and the breast is smaller. A real turkey.
