reminds me when in Greece
by James Denison / June 27, 2016 9:53 PM PDT

I was only there a week or so and had been studying the greek language already, but not enough to converse of course. I got on a KTEL bus from Iraklion Kriti to an outlying village of Gournes. I was 30 and at down near some man looking in his 60's. I was tired after being in the city for the day and just wanted to get home and relax. The other passenger started saying something to me, so I told him "Ego Den Milase Ellinika Glossa" to head him off. In a changed accent than his previous, he replied "Neither do I ol' chap". Turned out he had a cockney accent but could change for the tired American, LOL. He'd been there during WW2 and was visiting it again for the first time since.
