Happy New Year!

What better way to ring in the new year than watching fireworks explode over the Acropolis?

Athenians braved the rainy weather, forgot their woes, and came out with their umbrellas to celebrate.

The photographs are from the daily paper Kathimerini, and provided some distraction from the otherwise continuing dismal news. What do we have to look forward to in 2019? Yet more rising taxes, elections, and a continuing and unmanageable refugee crisis.

However, a brand new year always brings with it a glimmer of hope. And the feeling that here we are, alive and kicking—we made it through another year!

  1. I wish the same for my country as well. The sooner we humans get into our sense, the better. Otherwise, the road ahead will not be so smooth.

    Wishing you a very happy new year, Marina. May it bring more joy to you and your fellow Grecian 🙂
