4 ways Greece is like California

August 2nd, 2010

If you think about it, there’s plenty of ways Greece is NOT like California; the countries are on different continents for cryin’ out loud. But the two do have some odd similarities when you get beyond the trivial details like olive oil production or a taste for beachfront property.

Here’s four ways that Greece is like California which you probably haven’t thought about:

  1. From the freeway, it’s all brown hills and oleander bushes.
  2. It’s always “hella this” and “hella that.”
  3. The deficit.
  4. Half the people you try to talk to only speak a foreign language.

That said, come to Greece for the unbelievably good food and warm beaches, but head back to California when you miss the ability to flush your soiled toilet paper down our superior sewers. Hell, the first thing I’ll do when I get back to California is to flush an entire roll of toilet paper for absolutely no reason, other than the fact that I can. And you can quote me on this.
