Day thirtythree....

Reclaim the streets

In the summer of 2008 I met this man;

He went by the name Ratty, he was a king amongst hippies. During the long, hot day drinking cider in dirt he talked a lot of wisdom. Was he the the second coming? Or was there just too much scrumpy supped, but one thing that stuck with me the following day and too this day was his rambling about this movement....

Amongst all the craziness of WWII and surrounding political landscapes, the swastika became an iconic Nazi symbol, and now as a result is banned from use in many countries. However before this the swastika was an ancient symbol. Used by Hindus and Buddhists and even Coca-Colaists.

But what has this got to do with cheese? Well There is now a cheese company Reclaiming the swastika. The Mozzarella Co. has created a new cheese. Christmas Cheese. And its packaging?

Last time I saw the hippy Ratty he said he was off for a more simple life in Texas somewhere...?
