Are you Grecian ? Are you Greek Canadian or Greek American?

I am too!

The Greeks have left us an incredible legacy in the areas of history, science, math, philosophy, drama, theatre, Grecian mythology, etc. In a was, we are all property of ancient Greek civilizition.

I am interested in connecting with other Greeks located throughout the world. Share with me you stories of how you have kept your Greek culture intact, while at the same time adopting the best parts of the countries you have made your home. Are you a fan of Greek music and movies? How fluent are you in both Greek-English?

I am also interested in gathering a list of famous (living) Greeks from around the world (excluding those living in Greece).

Here is a short list of famous Greeks (excluding any past, present or future Greek Gods) :)

Micheal Dukakis

George Stephanopoulos

Paul Tsongas

Olympia Snowe

George Micheal

Jennifer Aniston

Let me know which Greeks have made an impact in your country.

Lastly, I would like to hear funny about / share funny stories about what it was like to grow up Greek in countries where Greek was not the dominant language. How did others view and treat you? Was it hard to maintain your Grecian traditions and beliefs... did you even try?

I am not Greek, however it looks like all of us from the rest of europe are now going to be investing in greece...

Maybe I should go see where the tax (that i don't pay..lol) is going to be spent..

I will avoid the sea salt...

Well, I am a Greek living in Athens, Greece...

but I have to tell you...

it is difficult to keep one's greek identity intact, even when living in his/her own country...

older people are leaving one by one and the younger ones have been misleaded into believing that they should reject their "provincial" ways and be more... international!!!

The urban pull is getting stronger and, on top of everything, the country is facing the international economic vultures and now Greeks are once again emigrating to make a decent living...

Einai megalo krima. (Krima means crime, you know)
