Ekspedicija į Suvalkus nepavyko. Neatsipirko dėl pinigų ir pakenkė moraliai. Pinigus, tiesa, dar reikia suskaičiuoti – gal koks vienas kitas euras ir prisidėjo, bet noro skaičiuoti balansą nebuvo.

She's old and she tattoos only things of the past. Her license is the oldest one. Her parlor is old, too, in the dead center of the ethnographic quarter.

I was conceived by a carpenter with quivering hands in the back of a lumberyard. She was called Anatólia. Some days she had to fix flaws, sawing one or two parts of me again.

Nasci de uma carpinteira com mãos trêmulas nos fundos de uma serraria. Seu nome era Anatólia. Havia dias em que ela serrava alguma parte de meu corpo para consertar alguma falha. Em outros, arremessava meus pedaços contra a parede, esbravejando para a mobília tímida que ela mesma construíra.
