Greek style

by Tina

This post was supposed to go up yesterday as it was a National Holiday here. On October 28th 1940, Greece denied to surrender tο Mussolini's regime and by doing so entered 2nd World War. The holiday gave me the idea to look for pictures that bring to mind  Greece and Greek style. Do you think of any of these when you hear "greek style" and what would you add to the list? Would you remove something?
