A chance to visit a place probably/hopefully unique in the whole universe.

(Just a) little.


This rustic phrase is seldom used now, which is disappointing as is rather useful. It is possible to ask for nakhon nerron – a little water, or even nakhon isehia – a little quiet.  It adapts almost perfectly to use with the proverbial classic British understatement (litotes) when used as an answer to some questions that one would normally prefer to express an opinion on.
For example, motora driving lunatics begging for death at the hands (or rather tyres) of their fellow road-users can be nakhon abrosekti or "a little careless".
Nakhon ithiotropos characterises beautifully the most egocentric of low-I.Q. loose cannons - the traditional Cypriot zoppo and any pedestrian crossing any road in Cyprus would have to describe their position as nakhon ebigindinos or a tad dangerous.
If further examples were needed, we can note that Ayia Napa - probably the island's biggest and dirtiest tourist trap - has become nakhon akrivi (a little expensive) which is doubtless why it is currently nakhon keno (a bit empty). 
This to a similar degree as the Exxon Valdez incident was nakhon akadastadon or a little messy - thus rendering both venues more or less equally attractive to the holiday-making public.
