I am fed up with the economic debt, the cynical speculators and the snobbish technocrats. I am fed up with the collapsing public services, the bankruptcy, the thick-skinned civil servants, the corruption […]

Retailers who were waiting for the Christmas period in order to improve  their sales, sit on their stock as customers stay away from downtown Athens. Public transport will […]

Few cars, few passers by, dark side streets. And lots of broken glasses, burnt down trash, holes in many shops’ windows. Unfortunately I realized too late that […]
