Greek

A friend came back from vacation in a Greek island, and brought me a gift: a book in Greek by a contemporary Greek author named Antonis Samarakis. She knows perfectly well I can't read Greek, but she also knows I plan to study Ancient Greek at St. John's College next year, so the gift subtly alludes to my famous appetite for languages.

Neat!
