William Papas

Papas only made one Odyssey in his life, from his birthplace in South Africa to the land of his forbears. The journey, however, took twenty years and followed a hazardous course via truck driver, farmer, airman, Jamaica, labourer, dish washer, riveter's mate, India, political cartoonist, hitch-hiker, billboard walker, baby sitter, London, husband, sailor, book publisher, children's story teller, Lapland, artist, and reindeer rounderupper. Papas stayed in Greece for 12 years.
