να αλλάξει την ονομασία της χώρας Macedonia σε FYROM, μου έδωσε την εξής απάντηση
Ο μόνος λόγος που παραθέτω το κείμενο εδώ είναι απλός για να δούμε πως βλέπουνε οι ξένοι το ζήτημα της ονομασίας της Μακεδονιας!in every travel guide you'll see it called Macedonia,
then in a small side note they'll say that yeah
the technical name is "fyrom".
cmon ! i know it's a greek region but readers searching
for pics of Skopije will search for "macedonia" and not
fyrom, that's a good reason for why i wrote macedonia
and not fyrom.
i know there's a mutual hate between macedonians and northern
greeks but then for the same reason i should divide italy in
3 parts at least, take off Corsica and Brittany from france,
basque countries from spain, wales from UK, eastern prussia
from poland, etc
it's infact BECAUSE of EU that "fyrom" is still an
"entity" and not recognized fully .. who cares, as long
as i can reach it easily with train, car, airplane, as long
as they have their own currency, their own government, etc etc
call it as you want but ...
it's the same here for Taiwan, but it's 100% a country, just
not recognized by UN due to the chinese government.
(btw the taiwanese nationalists reclaim ownership of mainland and
mongolia as well, in case it may interest you...)
so what do we do ?
i haven't been in Skopije, took those pics from public domain
or other sources, i don't even remeber, they suck however,
and looking at the stats, very few ppl read them
if you want i can delete the whole Fyrom from map
with that ugly photo kit,nobody will complain
i'll rewrite that site from SCRATCH with a new
super duper CMS i'm developing so it will be quite
better than now (lets say 2 months to get it ready)
and TONS of new pics, even if im doing other stand alone
sites (tokyo, hong kong, beijing, etc) which are much
dont worry, history is one of my fav subject
and i deeply respect Hellas !
