The Athenian culture promotes a feeling of connectivity between people. No one exists in his or her own separate world, but as all together all the time
By travelling to a new city and moving to a town with new people, I stepped into the city of Athens expecting a monstrous amount of “culture shock.” The funny thing about “shock” however, is that we are always shocked by what we do not expect. I expected to find differences in food, in language and in principles. What I failed to expect was such a vast difference in not only the way Grecian people treat each other, but also in the way they think of each other – how they just exist together.
