Really? What I wrote gave you the impression that the ambrosia of retsina has never touched my lips? Um, something must have been lost in translation, TD. (1) I'm part Greek. (2) I said retsina is regarded as a novelty. (3) Yes, real Greek restaurants are supposed to carry retsina, however, and back me up on this fellow part-Greeks, the majority of Greeks would rather not drink it, nostalgic or not. Ouzo? OK, let's do shots all night. Retsina? For malakas. I dunno, maybe you're from the Astoria contingent, but in Chicago's Greektown, retsina was on the shelves but everybody drank mavrodaphne or Nemea red wine. My papu used to drink retsina like lemonade but the rest of the family considered it the Greek equivalent of moonshine and a source of embarrassment. At any rate, some people really like it, from my observations, especially people who honeymooned in Santorini or spent the summer of their junior year island hopping in the Aegean. I'd be surprised if I see it in Taiwan, so it's kind of a moot point.
Me and your papu, like this:
So I'm a malaka, I can live with that.
We also used to drink a lot of Demestica.
Ouzo, in those days, was for frat boys.
TaipeiD, is that you in the picture, because, uh, I don't want to be harsh, but...well, you look like a chick, dude.
