I met Yuri in a stall in the Christmas Market in St. Enoch Square, making the “Best Macaroons in the World”. (A pretty reasonable claim.) As Yuri was born and raised in Italy, I had to ask if he had any Russian relations, but he didn’t. It was a name his parents chose. Not, as I originally supposed, Yuri as in Gargarin, but Yuri as in Doctor Yuri Zhivago.
