|On top of the "Hop-On Hop-Off"|
I was busy taking pictures of the garbage in the streets before we had even left the pier.
The garbagemen have not been paid for 4 months
When the bus would drive by the piles of garbage, the stench was high and wafted to our nostrils, beating out the smell at any dump I have ever gone to.

The people who took the Hop-On, Hop-Off bus after us, got caught in the demonstration traffic, couldn't move, and a second bus had to be sent from the pier to rescue them from the gnarled traffic and get them back on board, as we sailed at 5:30 pm.
Two crew and 4 passengers still didn't make it to the ship.
I can tell you who.
All of the people who were at the rally across the street, singing songs of solidarity and complaining to the government about the Greek economy. This merchant was not making much money.
The Greek economy is not looking that stable right now for him ... and for others.
