A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

In so many ways, this photo typifies Greece.

Let me set the stage: It's Tuesday, 2 PM, in the middle of Thessaloniki. I've spent the whole day (and the whole next day) running around in paperwork circles, accomplishing nothing. As we (I and 2 other Americans helping me) are walking to and fro, we come across this car, double-parked on a major street, blocking the road.

When we walked by, we did a double-take. I don't know if you can tell, but this woman is fast asleep in the car (fortunately, she's the passenger).

Ah, Greece! ( ;
