Could someone help me with an English translation of this item?
There are also exhibits from farming life such as tools and the traditional *kazani*, a water cauldron, and some nautical items. There is particular reference to the historical and social life, with exhibits from the Cretan police force, and through the depiction of a barber shop, the cafe neon, the old grocery shop and the greengrocers.
The Turkish Cypriots living in Larnakas now come from two villages in the district of Paphos: Akoursos and Kritoutera. Larnakas is called Kozan(köy) by the present inhabitants. A Turkish Cypriot told me that the (new) village name derives from the Greek word kazani which means cauldron, referring to the fact that the villagers of Akoursos and Kritoutera live mixed now in Kozan (Larnakas). http://www.dur.ac.uk/anthropology/daj/vol12/iss1/dikomitis/i...
Once the sheepherders \"tsoubani\" sheared the sheep, the women then began their \"labor of love\" to turn the raw wool into yarn.
1. The women washed the wool by the river with \"ash water\" (\"alisiva\" or \"stahtonero\"). Wood ashes were boiled in a large vat \"kazani\" and the ash water was poured onto the wool, which was laid on a rock, to remove the lanolin and impurities.
2. The wool was then washed with soap and rinsed with cold water.
In 1740, a son of the Rovithis family was to be baptised in the church of the monastery. Before that the baptismal font had, however, been destroyed by the janizaries, so the child was baptised in a big casserole (kazani). With the Cretans\' sense of humour, the boy immediately got the byname Kazanis. He became the grandfather of the well-known resister Manolis Kazanis. http://www.kretakultur.dk/english/sights/lassithi eng/lassit...
