glass ash tray

In most American restaurants ash trays are a thing of the past, but here in Greece, they are found on every table inside and outside.  Plus…they get lots of use.  As for the pitcher of water, we were stunned watching our waiter fill it.


All of our plentiful crystal clear drinking water comes down the mountain and runs continually from stone fountains like this one that filled our pitcher.  Silly Americans, we thought that the ancient public stone fountains were just decorative.
