Busy Doing Nothing

More days off!

Today is a public holiday for May Day. No work!

We'd only just finished with Easter too and yesterday was a normal Wednesday half-day!

You gotta hand it to the Greeks, they know how to work a system. It's probably some vitally important Saint's day or Greek historical occasion next Monday resulting in more closed shops and nothing happening. I cant been bothered to check (cos I'm picking up some Greek habits now).

So, what's this got to do with the picture of the concrete blocks?

Well, special holidays or not, those concrete blocks have been sitting doing zilch for about two months now.

Construction on the new waterfront round the East side of the harbour battered ahead apace during the winter but it seems to have ground to a Greek halt for now.

The crane that lifts the blocks into the sea has gone. I guess this is our sea-view for the foreseeable future.

Still, that's what Athens looked like 24 hours before the last Olympics. So, you never know!
