  • If I still lived in my old neighborhood in central Athens today, I’d be missing the following luxuries:

    1. My local supermarket
    2. My local bank branch
    3. My local Starbucks
    4. My local movie theaters
    5. My favorite place for a quick lunch

    They were all burnt down last Sunday by a group of protesters in black hoodies.
