As always it's the people I adore most, always welcoming, friendly and good humoured so I really to hope things can take a turn for the better over the coming months.
After a bit of rummaging I found some original Greek Drachma notes among the hoarded stuff in the "man-drawer". I know there are some bad memories of the old currency but it is a very difficult decision as to the best way forward for Greece as all directions are treacherous. Perhaps a new Drachma, not pegged to the Euro, could reset and re-ignite the economy over time. Combined with European trade agreements this may not be beyond conception. Good luck Greece.
