Photographer's Note

Sunset in Peraia, a small town about 30 km outside Thessaloniki (the Capital of Northern Greece, the second largest city of the country, with more than 2300 years of important history). Peraia was the favorite destination for the summer vacations of the inhabitants of the city, during the 60's and 70's. Then beautiful Halkidiki took its place and for about 20 years Peraia passed a period of decline. Nowadays is starting to gain back its old glamour, and it's a place worth a visit for its great fishtavernes and nice beach.

According to Eurostat, Greece is the 5th poorest country among the 27 members of the E.U. with 30% of its population living very close or below the limit of poverty. Only Romania, Letonia, Lithouania and Hungary are in worse position. With the new measures imposed by the Troika in the new Memorandum today, leading deeper and deeper into endless recession, next year Greece will for sure go higher in this sad list. Thank you so much all you friends, allies and partners, E.U. and IMF for your help, we don't need it anymore. We can die all by ourselves, your help is not necessary!
