‘It’s all Greek to me.’
This saying really hit home after travelling in Greece, the land of the gods. Gods who certainly had a different idea of common sense than I do.
I’ve travelled all over Europe, but this was my first time in a country where I wasn’t only unable to speak the language – I couldn’t even read it!
Staying in Athens, it was all I could do to remember my stop to get off the metro – the one with the two upside-down ‘y’s and the funny ‘O’ – Kallithea (Καλλιθέα).
