Athens revisited

athens2012x3

Nothing much has changed in Greece, where the words democracy, crisis and chaos were born, since my last visit to Athens in 2012.

Debts should be honored and Greece has been spending beyond it’s means without everyone paying enough tax, but that doesn’t get away from the fact that a lot of people are suffering as a consequence. And it’s a tragedy, another Greek word. I love Greece, and Athens in particular and urge everyone to go there for the wonderful sites and food and people and sun. And spend lots of money while you’re there.

The Depression Era are producing some particularly interesting documentary work http://www.depressionera.gr/183825/about
