I have stumbled upon a very interesting article that proves Greeks may be the original inventors of pizza! At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter, especially since our cultures are so close and im sure that hundreds of cultures have been eating different variations of bread, tomato and cheese. Let me know if you think that Greeks actually invented pizza!!

While in Santorini we visited ancient city of Acrotiri and saw the proof that the Ancient Greeks invented pizza and crepes.

What is the proof? Is there a museum? I would love to visit :)

You could say that. You can find something very similar to pizza, a traditional "pita" made and eaten on the island of Kimolos in the Cyclades. It is called "ladenia" and is made of a pizza-like dough and topped with onions, tomatoes, and olive oil.

Is it still eaten today?

Yes it is! The bakeries on Kimolos and Milos make it and you can also find the recipe and make it yourself. Below a photo of mine.

Wow, this looks delicious. This truly does look like it could be a pizza precursor. So yummy! One day soon I will hopefully have a chance to try his for myself.

What is the difference between the Roman and Byzantine empire?

This is something that has always confused me. I've seen people use the words Roman and Byzantine interchangeably, but I'm pretty sure that the Roman empire was led by the Italians, and the Byzantine empire by the Greeks/Romans. Does anyone see my confusion here? And is someone able to clarify?

What do you think of the movie Alexander?

I've seen many different opinions of this movie, most of them debating its historical accuracy and the actors portrayal of these characters. I am very curious to see what everyone else thinks. Personally I am happy to see that Alexander the great story made it to the big screen, and with such great and famous actors. But I would love to see a little bit more history and culture in the movie.

Can you pass this Greek geography quiz?

I'm so curious to see how much everyone knows about Greek geography. Personally, I know very little so it's super interesting to see how actual Greeks did with these questions.

Who is your favorite Greek leader?

Throughout all of the years and empires throughout Greek history, who is your favorite leader? Who do you think did the best job in leading and supporting Greece. Personally I think Venizelos was great, since he contributed greatly to the modern success of Greece both domestically and on an international level.
