Greece – The market survey report of water purifier
First, the emerging market for water purifier.
Why do I say that? As I visited three cities in Greece, including Athens, Santorini and Thessaloniki. I asked several restaurants and caf’es of some questions. They answered that their tap water was very clean so they didn’t need any water purifiers. That means they didn’t have the habit of using water purifiers. We spent eight days in these three cities, and didn’t see any water purifier stores on the streets. In addition, we lodged at four guesthouses in total during this period. They didn’t install any water purifier equipment in kitchen either.
We took the pressure gauge to measure the water pressure in each area of Greece. They were listed below：
1. The coffee shop which was located in the urban district of Athens：3.8 kg/cm2.
2. The guesthouse which was located in Athens：4.95 kg/cm2.
3. Santorini Island：2.5 kg/cm2

Second, the graffiti walls were surprising.
There were a lot of graffiti on the exterior walls of buildings. You could see them on the walls everywhere. It had become a feature in Athens. Even the vans also had graffiti on their bodies. It was more exaggerative than New York.
Third, their life habits were similar to the Middle Eastern countries.
Though Greece joined the European Union, their culture, diet and lifestyle were deeply influenced by the Middle East (Muslim countries), such as hookah and flea market. Almost every one could speak English here. This advantage made them stronger than the rest of European countries. It’s worth mentioning that there were lots of pickpockets in Athens. My family and I were stolen twice in these few days, and one of them was a couple of women. Fortunately, we watched out for this situation and reacted fast enough, so we didn’t lose anything. In here, the guesthouses owners and the taxi drivers kept telling us to be careful of pickpockets.
