Athens 2004 — The Olympic Summary

“All those songs are in Greek. I don’t understand them.” — Hadar’s father watching the Closing Ceremony of the XXVIII Olympiad.

I did understand one, though — “Misirlou”, made world-famous by Quentin Tarantino, who used Dick Dale’s version in “Pulp Fiction.” Apparently it’s Greek. I even heard the Greek chanteuse sing the word “misirlou” in the chorus; i still don’t know what it means.

Sports? Yeah, i watched some. Athletics is nice to watch, even when there are no Israelis.
