Was Alexander the Great a gypsy?


                                Gypsies
The Gypsies are an easily-identified, incredibly distinct, and bitterly hated non-European race dispersed throughout Eastern Europe and the Balkans. The Roma people, a sub-group of the greater Romani race that occupies Europe, emigrated as nomads from North India several centuries ago. The exact timeframe and circumstances incurring their relocation are unclear. They may have migrated for superior agricultural opportunities, they may have traveled westward on trade routes created by Alexander the Great, or they may have been fleeing from persecution in India by the invading Mujahidin of the Muslim sultanates there (Ghorids, Ghaznavids, or the Lodis of Delhi). The only certainty is that it took centuries and began at least over 500 years ago.

The Feast of Peleus" (1873) by Sir Edward Burne-Jones  depicting the wedding of Peleus and Thetis.  Eris is on the far right, looking positively demonic with her leathery bat wings. It's no wonder everyone else is getting worked up, she looks pretty scary compared to all these hot naked people. The image is too small for me to make out who's who here although I'm pretty sure Zeus is in the center holding a thunderbolt and the three goddess are to the left of him with their hands outstretched.

The Greek elections will take place on Sunday, October 4. After three weeks, Greek citizens will choose their new term prime minister that will guide them through the great economic challenges of the time and make crucial decisions for the country's future course.

On September 11, 2009, Kathimerini said that a poll conducted on September 7 and 8 gave Pasok 151 seats (41 per cent) and New Democracy 96 seats (35.5 per cent).

The Communist Party would get 8.5 per cent, the Popular Orthodox Rally party (LAOS) 7 per cent and the Coalition of the Radical Left Syriza 4 per cent.

However, according to the today’s news reports, main opposition PASOK MP, former prime minister and party leader Costas Simitis, will not run for parliament in the elections. The reason was the rejection of Karamanlis regarding the PASOK leader George Papandreou's proposal to lead his party’s ballot in the Piraeus A' constituency or the Athens A' constituency.
It is remains to be seen whether the disagreement will be solved before the election date.

He has exhibited widely in Greece and UK and his paintings, prints and drawings can be found in private and public collections in the UK, Europe and the USA.





In regards to the Evil Eye that passed through my site, this seemed appropriate to add as a new post :)

According to Greek custom, every single person has the power of the evil eye, but not everyone knows it. The evil eye is described as negative power everyone carries.
