I would like to hear from Greeks in the US or Canada who are thinking about moving to Greece or have moved permanently to Greece. I just would like to hear their experiences, the hardships that they faced, and whether or not they felt like it was worth it or not. My family moved to the US when I was 12, and the older that I get, the more discouraged I get about how the Greeks are in the US, the gradual loss of culture,language & heritage and just the whole of American society and how materialistic it is. I am 25 right now. It's all about the dollar here - not that money is not important in Greece, but its different over there. Every time I go back to Greece in the summers, I feel like a different person, like I belong there, and that everyone understands me and who I am. And that's just not because of the summer good times there...I am talking about the people. Anybody else with similar experiences and feelings? You are probably wondering why have I not moved there yet....well for a number of reasons that I won't get into here. I would love to hear what you have to say.
