I LOVE Greece, everything about it – the food, antiquities, wine, olives, countryside, people, cheese, culture, islands, Athens, everything – well almost everything… From a country that has brought us democracy, great philosophy and of course the olympics, why haven’t they got a better plumbing system!
I was lucky enough to visit Greece this May and had an absolutely wonderful time visiting Athens, Crete, Santorini and Rhodes – which I will go into more detail in subsequent blogs. But what I couldn’t get used to was having to remember to not flush my toilet paper. It was like this 17 years ago when I visited and nothing has changed in that time. Is this what the media means when it talks of Greece going down the proverbial??? Luckily we didn’t see any riots whilst we were there but is this what they are really revolting about? If not, then they should add it to the list!
