Greece and Turkey - Observations in December 2011 and January 2012

Observations of my 10 day trip to Turkey where my husband and I went to Greece for 2 days (Lesbos - was just about 1.5-2 hours across the water from my mother in law's house)

Same:
- Turkish/Greek coffee, same stuff
- Backgammon in the coffee shops
- Fish, Olive oil, olives, and cheeses


Different:
- Dominant religion  - Greece: Christian and Turkey: Muslim
- Using helmets when driving motorcycles: Greece: Didn't see them and Turkey: required
- Cigarettes: Greece: example: ladies cigarettes marketed as cute little flowery boxes, sort of reminds me of how companies market sanitary pads and Turkey: scary photos of sick people or people in bed looking like something didn't happen..showing the dangers of smoking
- Smoking: Greece: No smoking signs everywhere but at the same time everyone is smoking, even next to a sign. Our hotel room had a no smoking sign outside but had an ashtray inside and Turkey: No smoking means no smoking
- Honking: Greece: not big into honking and Turkey: Love to honk at slightest infraction
