How bizzare. I guess its because the Greek economy is making global headlines at the moment.
Economics aside, this crisis is really taking its toll on Greek nationals abroad. The crisis has given rise - once again - to racial stereotypes. Unfortunately not the good ones. The Greeks in Germany have responded to this by writing a letter to the German press.
To be a Greek abroad it seems as though we always have to apologise for the behaviour of Greeks in Greece. Be it the state of the Parthenon, how we burn down our remaining forests to build illegal villas, to the corruption that seeps out of every pore of this country.
Its not our fault!
And as i have written previously - nor is it the average citizens fault.
But it doesn't make it hurt less.
