Who read my "creations", he should remember the little girl in love with Greece. Now she is a student of one of the universities, lives and studies in Athens. Many of my acquaintances this fact shocks. All dialogues begin approximately the same: "Why, why did you send it there? Crisis, poverty, refugee crowds ». Dialogues ends the same in the same way: "Wow! Who knew! It is even difficult to assume … "and t.D. and T.NS. First, education in Greece is free. Secondly, thirdly, in the fourth …. Fly, food almost in all universities is also free, 3 times or for a symbolic fee (it all depends on the company that won the tender). For a very long time asked a student to send photos of breakfast, lunches and dinners. I was interested, what the Greeks of their (and not) students are fed. Later it turned out that the student for breakfast does not go, and not even because laziness in the morning to get up and sprinkle to lectures in the morning, she grabs "residues" with dinner. Every day, regardless of the desires of students, to the student tray put: a plate of soup, a salad bowl of fresh vegetables, put a chicken / meat / fish, side dish, dessert or fresh seasonal fruit and … a piece of feta cheese (gr. 50-70), polished olive oil, sprinkled oregano. Cheese, as a rule, students take with them, shifting into plastic containers. In the morning of cheese (and he already watered butter and got the origano) I make sandwiches, breakfast and go to lectures. Buying meat / fish products dzaziki sauce student does not, sincerely consider that it is a crime to translate yogurt for a snack, and even troublesome. Greek yogurt she prefers in a company with nuts, muesls, honey, fruit. But the "Feta" cheese remaining with dinner, she "ruthlessly exploits".
