yeah i know, i was about 14 when i tried it and at that time i wasn't very experienced with ethnic foods... i later found out that it was middle eastern when i was about 17 and i was doing research on the internet about middle eastern food.
although, if you look at a map, greece is in the mediterranean sea on one side and the other side is in the aegean sea, neighbours to turkey which is in the middle east. that is why some of the greek food seems to resemble middle eastern food more than mediterranean, like baklava, pita bread, hummus, lamb, and a whole slue of other things...
and there is also when the muslims invaded the whole of the mediterranean many many years ago in 711 A.D. and that is where the mediterranean get their dark hair and eyes and olive skin. before the muslims invaded, the spanish were very pale skinned and had dark hair and green eyes and they fled to ireland to inhabit unoccupied land and they are now known as the irish, but they were the spanish before they fled.
sorry, now i am just babbling.
