The culture of the small Greek Islands is, well mythical! Time seems to stand still...they are modern, yet, they are traditional. A slower pace for sure, and the Greeks are laid back and know how to live and enjoy themselves! From 3 year olds to 90 (or more) are out in the streets until late all summer, particularly when family come back to the islands in August. This is a communal people like no other! Greeks and sit and enjoy each other's company for hours around a table full of great Greek Mese....If it is summer, it is time to relax, and they do!
