yeah i agree with you on this. i have often heard people say that- that we in exoteriko are more greek. typically they are more educated i've noticed. its often pig astihioti types that sit around and feel better about their miserable life by making fun of the US or whatever.
: I've never had that experience in Greece - and I'm a Greek born and brought up in England. I still live in England but when ever I return to Greece every year, I never hear that I'm not a true Greek. In fact, I often hear that because my family left Greece a long time ago, and that often Greeks of the exoteriko maintain traditions more than Greeks in Greece who have changed with Europe, that I'm often called 'more Greek than a Greek!'. You may need to choose your company more carefully - as you said, you may be just unlucky and those Greeks you spoke to were idiots.
