The TV discussion was about – what else? – what’s wrong with Greece. One of the participants explained that he had been a guest-worker in Germany. That he had worked hard there and was respected for it. That he felt proud about this. That he could make enough money to support his family and provide a better future for his children. That he had very good medical and other social services in Germany. Etc., etc.
And now he was back in Greece and only saw a big mess all around him. What a country this was!
My wife’s conclusion from this TV discussion was very “Greek”: she exclaimed how right this man was and how everything was so terrible here but that this man was also a very typical Greek because he loved his country, the best and most beautiful country in the world and he returned to it!
