Present

Back in Athens, I try to make up my mind about what I really want to do next. It's not easy, because recession makes things much more difficult in every aspect of our life, but I try to stay focused on what I need and how I can make it happen. In the mean time, I stay home a lot watching my favourite shows or reading books and magazines, I cook and bake, I often invite friends over, and some nights I go out for dinner or just drinks.

Although Greece struggles to tame the worst economic, political and social crisis since the end of World War 2, Athens remains a lively city. Maybe it's the sun that does not allow us to stay grumpy for long, maybe it's our very resistant DNA - who knows really?-  the thing is that the city and its inhabitants insist to keep their lives rolling. And they succeed.
