On the contrary python is strikingly similar to a simplified version of
lisp without parentesis. It is not an original opinion by far, see the
following post of an eminent lisp hacker:
Of course lisp is considerably more complex if you begin to use more
exotic features, but if you confine yourself to translating python code,
it may be almost litteral translation, as explained in the link above.
