a wee bit of factchen

I’ve just realised that the new Greek prime minister’s name translates as father of the people

Souvlaki actually means little stick or sword.  Aki is the diminutive like chen in German or li in schwyzerdütsch.  

I have no other facts other than I am going to have souvlaki this evening and I still miss my favourite souvlakiera that closed its restaurant area last year.
