Evzones and the unknown soldier
A classic tourist theme from Athens. The tomb of the unknown soldier, just in front of the parliament. Tourists find very amusing the "foustanela" that the guards wear, they call it "skirt" and they make immoral jokes about it. Well, they might say similar things about the Scots' kilt, at least the Greeks wear something beneath their foustanela.
