Mi chiamo Karim Amir e sono un vero inglese, più o meno. La gente mi considera uno strano tipo di inglese, come se appartenessi a una nuova razza, dal momento che sono nato all'incrocio di due culture. A me però non importa, sono inglese (non che la circostanza mi riempia di orgoglio), vengo dalla periferia a sud di Londra e sto andando da qualche parte. Forse è stato lo strano miscuglio di continenti e sangue, un pezzo qui e uno là, l'avere un senso di appartenenza e il non averlo, a rendermi una persona irrequieta, che tende ad annoiarsi facilmente. O forse è stato il fatto di essere cresciuto in periferia. Comunque sia, perché risalire a delle cause quando è evidente che ero in cerca di guai: volevo movimento, cercavo occasioni di azione, opportunità di esprimere la mia curiosità sessuale e questo perché l'atmosfera in casa mia era opprimente, tetra e noiosa, e il tutto senza un vero motivo. A essere franco, era una situazione che mi deprimeva così tanto che ero pronto a qualsiasi cosa.

Ich heiße Karim Amir und bin ein waschechter Engländer –jedenfalls beinahe. Man hält mich oft für eine komische Sorte Engländer, als gehörte ich zu einer neuen Rasse, die aus zwei alten Kulturen hervorgegangen ist. Aber mir ist das egal: Ich bin Engländer (wenn auch nicht unbedingt stolz darauf), ich komme aus den südlichen Randbezirken Londons und gehe wer weiß wohin. Vielleicht ist es diese verrückte Mischung aus Völkern und Kontinenten, aus hier und da, aus dazugehören und nicht dazugehören, die mich so unruhig macht, die schuld daran ist, daß ich mich so schnell langweile. Vielleicht liegt es auch an der Vorstadt, der Suburbia, in der ich aufgewachsen bin. Aber warum im Innenleben herumsuchen, wenn die Erklärung doch völlig ausreicht, daß ich auf Ärger aus war, daß ich keinem Abenteuer, keiner Aufregung oder Affäre aus dem Weg ging, weil es in unserer Familie so trübselig, schlaff und stumpfsinnig zuging; woran das lag, weiß ich nicht. Ganz ehrlich, mich zog einfach alles runter, und ich war zu allem bereit.

■英語原文 The original text in English

My name is Karim Amir, and I am an Englishman born and bred, almost. I am often considered to be a funny kind of Englishman, a new breed as it were, having emerged from two old histories. But I don't care - Englishman I am (though not proud of it), from the South London suburbs and going somewhere. Perhaps it is the odd mixture of continents and blood, of here and there, of belonging and not, that makes me restless and easily bored. Or perhaps it was being brought up in the suburbs that did it. Anyway, why search the inner room when it's enough to say that I was looking for trouble, any kind of movement, action and sexual interest I could find, because things were so gloomy, so slow and heavy, in our family, I don't know why. Quite frankly, it was all getting me down and I was ready for anything.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
