“Around my neighbourhood in central Athens, most of the old Kafenions have made space for American-style coffee shops. It is “International Workers Day“. One has to wait till 7 am to indulge in a large Cappuccino. When I cross the road a platoon of riot police are ready to deal with what will come.” – 1st May 2015
