Smyrna has nothing to do with the city that we have in our minds. That city was burned in the fire. The place of the old houses has now been occupied by huge buildings and really expensive hotels. All the traces of the past are gone. That doesn’t matter though.
Smyrna is all about grandma’s narrations, it’s the spicy cuisine, the destruction and the beginning of a new life. It hasn’t been wiped out after all. It just exists in a different way. [Ελληνικά]
