This paper compares and contrasts the Greek and American cultures in terms of culture and lifestyle, vis a vis priorities, fellowship, entertainment, food and family. The paper contends that America is primarily a land of opportunity and material success, while Greece is primarily a land of camaraderie and familial connectedness.
From the Paper:"America's freedom and opportunity have drawn immigrants from all over the world to her shores to join together in one of the largest melting pots in the world. In the streets of America Italians can live next door to Germans and Africans can live next door to Native Americans. Since immigrants bring elements of their culture with them to America, knowing someone of another ethnicity-or even growing up in an ethnic family-can convince us that we are acquainted with that culture."
