Team Greece have arrived in Athens

After a long night sleeping at the airport a tired but happy group of five arrived in Athens.

After being welcomed with a shot of the Greek spirit ‘Raki’, the group was shown around the neighbourhood by their host for the trip, Pantelis, who himself is also a journalist.

He told them about his struggles working as a journalist after the crisis, while advising tme on where to go to meet local young people who will be interesting for the separate stories.

After a snack consisting of the obligatory feta cheese and olives, a well deserved rest was needed before going to the local taverna to experience some authentic Greek cuisine. Unfortunately they didn’t arrive on time for the Independence Day Parade but hopefully there will still be some celebrations going on in the city.

Hopeful and excited for the following week, the team are crossing their fingers for interesting interviews and warmer weather.
