Greek and Proud I have been to greece 1 time but I hope to one day make it over there again. It's beautiful down there. My great grandparents are from Tripoli. My maternal grandparents were from Athens and my Paternal grandparents are from Kalamata were the greek olives came from. My ancestors are Kolokotroni which he was a Greek general. This is realy cool. I believe that my family and I are fighters like a general.
