A personal blog about life in the crowded city, where car horns, church bells and racing mopeds mix to provide the soundtrack to our new lives.
I am now on my second stint in Athens having had a few years in London in between, this makes for a good comparison basis. Replacing good salaries and rain for hardly a salary and sun, grey clothes and the constant threat of violence for black clothes and the constant threat of being run over, curry and a pint for pita and a frappe. That’s how life goes sometimes I guess; a pretty foreign girl smiles at you and then, years later, there you are, living in a flat underneath her parents.
There is enough negativity in Athens so every attempt will be made to keep this blog happy and positive…, we’ll see how that goes.
