Schrodinger, I totally forgot the congratulate you. So herewith congratulations
! Greece must be a fine place to live when you are retired, any thoughts of ever returning?

These days I've heard it's extremely hard to get a (well) paid job in Greece.

You know, I left Greece the first time when I was 7 to move to France and returned to live there from 11-14. Since then I've only been there for the holidays. Greece or more specifically Athens is a tough place to live when you've lived abroad for most of your life. The two mentalities are very different and often incompatible. So even though I would never close the door on anything, it is highly unlikely that we would ever live there again.

I am very happy where we are living now. Should that ever change I will consider another place. No need to cross that bridge now.

Congratulations, or should I offer you my sympathies for having jumped on a sinking ship?



Thank you for the congrats.
I have a big bucket, the ship will be fine.

So be smart.
Your vote doesnt count for a lot... why not make it a slap in the face...
Write Ron Paul in....


Oh Odessy, you want me to vote out of spite?
After 25 years as a resident, and 8 months through the process of becoming a citizen in order to vote, I am not going to vote in anger.

And trust me, I am familiar with spite, I'm quite sure that Greeks invented it. There is an old Greek saying that goes like this:

"If you can't push your enemy over the cliff, you must pull him over!"

Now that's spite.

Nope, I'm quite happy to vote my conscience in both the presidential and local elections.
