“strike” strikes Athens

Downtown Athens

Downtown Athens

There’s a general strike here in Athens, Greece. Today and tomorrow. Nothing works; you can transport nowhere – unless you use your own car. At least the city centre is peaceful and sunny, so you can take a nice walk without all the usual traffic and smog. Things won’t improve soon, as the financial situation worsens day by day. Everyone is thankful for the warm weather, since they don’t have to turn the heating on (a considerable expense).

Where have we come to….. What have we become….

  1. Unsettling times for your country . Somethings I imagine are going to take a long time to get back on track – as and when – the situation hopefully gets resolved . Keep strong!
