The friendship boat connecting Greece and Turkey. Only for experts: what is the small error in the Turkish flag?

This happened actually on September 3rd, at my arrival in Samos. I’m posting it today because I don’t want to forget it!

It’s a dialog between a New Zealand guy (working for the port tourist agencies) and me.

The Kiwi guy sees me and asks:

—Where are you from?

—Italy.

—Oh, nice! I love Italy!

—Yep!

—Is Nice in Italy or in France?

—In France.

—And Florence? And Venice? I loved that area, but I was a little drunk, so I can’t remember if it was France or Italy!

—…

I smiled, skipped the Treviso-close-to-Venice part, and went to the agency next door.

    I tend to be the first to comment your blog… so I keep the tradition of doing this.

    The question is: was the guy you met still drinking? or was the Italian/French party so great?

    Mmh, you missed the previous post!

    I was particularly shocked by the word ‘area’ related to Venice, Florence and Nice!

    Nice story :) I remember the japanese couple I met back in Athens. I was waitressing in the bar located on the roof of the hotel, that has a direct view of hill with Acropoli. They got up there, took about hundred photos with their massive camera and after this came to me and asked: “Excuse me, what is this hill?” I was stunned with my mouth opened.
