not like what you've heard

The news of Greece has for more than a year, for the most part, been depressing. Seems as if the Greeks haven't been reading about how poorly they're doing.
Cafe life, so often a good barometer of the spirit of a place and it's people, is in full bloom. Even with the 'tourist season' declaired as over, the shops, museums, and cafe's are packed.
I've found no signs of the financial collapse or the maurading hordes of Greeks ready to storm the halls of the birthplace of Democracy. Instead I see huge tour buses often full of Greeks, anxious to experience the beauty Athens in the fall.
Off in AM to the island of Rhodes.
