Konstantinos Charalampous

Sitting in K2 I heard a Greek girl say “Octomber” instead of ‘October’. This reminded me of my good friend from the Moscow Days, Kostas. I wonder if he’s still travelling the islands with Anastacia, tatooing the drifting foreigners, or whether, despite all his efforts, he has been roped into the army and had some discipline drilled into him. I’d be glad for any news about him; we have lost all contact because of our wanderings. Wherever he may be, I wish him all the best, and a comfortable path through life.

    Oktomber is such a classic. Gotta love this mistake.

    Ok. I just repeated Oktomber in K2 where the Greek girl is using her computer! Everything things like this always make me wonder what other people say about me. I know the innocent nickname is quite funny. What are the others?

  3. Yeah! I wonder where he is too… God bless him! 😉

  4. Remember, he also used to say ‘Coca Cola’ funny, and “Greece has nice bitches” instead of “beaches”!!!!

  5. The best Greek error I’ve found so far is mispronunciation of the word `can’t`. I’ll leave you to figure that one out. 🙂
