Because Greece is my mother's country and I have friends and relations over there, I have a special interest in its fate. Just as I have in Egypt because that was where I was born. Both my beloved countries are so beleaguered and in chaos, teetering on the brink of anarchy.
Today I read about a Greek woman who stated that if the worst came to the worst and there was no food, if people mugged one another on the way from the supermarket and lawlessness became endemic, she would return to Paros where she had a small plot of land. She would grow tomatoes and corn and live off the land as Greeks have always done.
