Marvel With A Mango: Olive Oil

Yes, that is five liters of olive oil...right next to the four liter and three liter bottles.  This reminds me of the sunflower seed displays in Ukraine.  The size of the bottle is appropriate however as Greeks consume the most amount of olive oil per capita [23.7 kilograms per person, yes you read that right] which is nearly  double the rate of Italian and Spanish citizens.

And since being here Laura and I have certainly upped our consumption as we are enjoying Greek salads at nearly every meal.
