And while we're at it, here are some other Things You Should Know About Greece.
My list would include not renting a scooter, or if you must, wear that hemut. Raising your hand with all five fingers extended and palm toward another person is the same as an extended middle finger,
Water is scarce in the Greek islands and taking long showers is really an unkindness. Further water is often solar heated, so it is best to take showers in the mid-day.
Septic systems are mostly large rock lined holes in not porous soil and toilet paper clogs them. Use the bin beside the toilet in which to dispose toilet paper.
Leaving the air conditioner on all day when you are at the beach is equally a cost that the apartment owners would like you to consider.
Equally, due to the economy, many people are not working in the field in which they are educated. We have been served drinks by an M.D., bought soda from a kiost operated by an economist and purchase groceries from a banker.
Many churches are privately owned by families and should not be entered without an invitation. Do not take photos of the alter.
One problem that the islands have are kind hearted, well intended people who feed cats and dogs. This leads the animal to have a second gestation period in the fall and, after the tourist season, many kittens are born who then do not have available food.
