Not a lot is known about the life of Menelaos Karagiozis. He was probably born in Athens in the sixties. Now lives abroad, possibly in the United Kingdom somewhere.
Menelaos Karanasos is a professor of time series econometrics at Brunel University, London. In his free time he reads poetry and likes to travel.
He met his namesake Menelao Karagiozi on the Greek island of Nisyros in the summer of 2007 and a few years later in Oxford where he gave him the interesting task of trying to publish his poetry.
He is grateful to his friends, John and Mary, for their help with the translation of the above text in English.
