During the winter nights we had no light.  There was no light, there was only a small lantern. With oil.  We would light it or perhaps an oil lamp.  We had these iron braziers, have you heard of the “maggali”? We put wood or coal in it and burned it.  We would sit around it, get warm, and our grandmothers or grandfathers – I had no grandmother – would tell us stories. Stories about kings, about queens, about a thousand other things. We had no television back then.
