Barcelona weekend trip is going great, a beautiful place - but more on that later.
So Vicky - a greek friend of Petroula and I were walking near La Ramblas today and found a few pigeons totally chilling...So I surprisingly felt nostalgic. And here's how the conversation goes :)
Me: This pigeon looks like the one from India.
She: Why do you say so?
Me: I mean, look at the color, texture - this is def like the ones from India. You see them everywhere.
She: These are in Greece too.
Me: How can we tell the difference?
She: Tell the pigeon to pronounce the word SUGAR. If it sounds as Shugar it is Indian and if sounds like ssssuuuuuuugar it is Greek.
Huge burst of laughter all around :) Go the Greek sounds of sssssss instead of shh :) I hope people who have interacted with Greeks and know their accents can understand this :)
