The people of Theologos treated us as though we were celebrities. Everyone knew about us. Everyone knew where we were anytime we were in the town. They had scouts watching us. I suppose they didn't have much else to do. It wasn't quite vacationing season yet, so the town was really empty for the time being. Beyond the whole being watched all the time, the townspeople were really friendly and dealt well with the fact that we didn't know much Greek. Sometimes the owners of various bakeries would give us free food. Yes, free food!
The area is really interesting. The town is so non-global: a big change compared to everywhere else I've been in Europe. They reuse the glass bottles for Coke and Sprite. They make their own Retsina (wine) and sell it in large plastic water bottles and huge jugs.
When the Athenians came to town, which was pretty much our last night, Theologos was extremely different. It was packed. There were people everywhere, every restaurant, every everything. Not that the town lost it's charm... we just lost our celebrity status. People could easily tell that we were not Greek, but I don't think they knew as much about us as before.
