Birthday of Ataturk
Everybody in Turkey knows Ataturk. His work, his life (although his marriage is still a no-talking issue) his vision, his life style. But if you look for his birthday, it always: Ataturk born in 1881, in Salonika, Greece. Without a day.
But it was fun to read an article by Turkish-Dutch student, who 'discovered' that Ataturk was born on the 17th of May 1881. For astrology freaks: the same birthday as Khomeini, Qaddafi, Enya, Stevie Wonder, and me...Will they threat me now with more respect in Turkey?...
