Greece just announced new restrictions only for unvaccinated. Now barred from outdoor dining. It is no longer summer but this is bullshit. And government buildings. So starting next week will need a rapid test to enter.
Get out while you still can.

To where? Seriously where is safe and better?
Tough question. Sounds like parts of India have rejected the narrative but no way I'd move there.

Sweden, Denmark? Japan?

I'm in Texas, and it's alright for now. But how can anyone trust Abbott or Dan Patrick, they're both Isn'treal firsters and are turning Texas into north Mexico.

I dunno. If Greece is going along with the insanity I'd rather be in the US. Maybe the Ozarks or even South Dakota.

I'm not American, I'm Canadian. No legal way to immigrate to US. So I fled Canada. I will survive here. It is disheartening but not going back to Canada.

No. What's bullshit is thinking the Greek government is going to do a good job enforcing these rules. All joking aside Meds are a little more wiggly when it comes to the rules. The thing that makes southern European bureaucracy so shitty is the same thing that makes it great.
The stereotype of the Greek Gypsy Cab is so prevalent it is found in economics textbooks in discussions on price floors.

Lets say you did buy that tourist fishing boat, and you have to be vaxxed to take out tourists. Okay when the inspector comes around you show him everything is in order, and as he is getting ready to sign off you say "hey I'm obviously new. Thank you for helping me get my business started. As a thank you I'm going to give you a bottle of wine" and you tape money to it. If he says no (he might be freaked out by you being uptight Anglo). Then you get his name and say you will drop it off at his house after work, and FOLLOW THROUGH. This works 90% of the time, 70% of the time !

Sorry Angryguy, I forgot you were from Canada.

One take on this is, all the governments are corrupt so your best bet is to be where the people are strong. Maybe Greece isn't so bad.

Come illegally to America my man. It's the latest trend and you might get $450,000 for your time and trouble 🀣🀣🀣.

If every other piece of shit is doing it then why not you? I'm not insinuating you're a POS btw πŸ˜‰.

You're in a good place. The Greeks are rebellious, and there are many islands.

Funny thing is avoiding islands as I don't want to get stuck on one that gets quarantined. But your right if I ever got stuck i could always pay someone on a private boat. The locals will always help someone in a bind. Looking in remote areas of mainland and maybe crete as its so large and rebellious I would feel safe there. People don't take kindly to authority there.

I think its also important to note that people love to help a "lost" foreigner. AngryGuy is going to get lots of mileage out of the "my wife she is Greek, but Im just a lost American" (I know he's a Canuck but to a euro its the same) Knowing how to play the clueless card can really work out well.
Once you learn how to say "I'm taking lessons in Greek, but I'm still so bad" people will become even more helpful.
I also learned once you have kids people will let you get away with anything. When I take my toddler in public, all kinds of social slights are forgiven. You block the aisle in the store, you are an asshole. You block the aisle with a kid and everyone thinks its cute the way he is trying to knock all the shit off the shelves.

@Angryguy, how well do you get along there without speaking Greek? Do enough people there speak English for you to get around?

Quite a few. I am relying on relatives for now for paperwork. But if that isn't a concern it should be pretty easy.

I mean for real tho, you U gonna b3 uh whyte boi in the Islands of the Aegean without a b0at? It's like saying you're an African without a spear, or a Finn without a knife, an American without a gun, a Frenchman without a, uh, a guillotine, or a Norwegian without an axe, a Jap without a katana, or a Chinaman without a cleaver.

If you're going Greek, you need a boat.

New restrictions will be announced today. Finally able to get my life started if they lock me in won't be able to go or buy anything. Came in rush and have been working on paperwork all this time.

They have a hard time as it is collecting taxes, even when the Troika forced them to collect more taxes as a condition for the bailout.

They are anti fascist so leave any wignattery at home. They put the Golden Dawn leaders in jail and had a Marxist goverment (since replaced by a more moderate one).

One of the biggest holidays in Greece is Oxi Day which commemorates the day in 1940 when the Greek prime minister said NO to Mussolini’s demands to station Axis troops in Greece.

Then again they fought a civil war with Communist rebels after WWII which left more Greeks dead than WWII itself. And of course they fought the Turks in the 1820s to get back their independents and together with the removal of Greeks from Turkish islands and mainland Turkey after WWI and the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 74 it means that the Greeks have viewed the Turks as their enemies for centuries. You will find plenty of Albanians one the islands who do mainenance work there but they’re unloved by the Greeks and seen as proxy-Turks.

The internet is good now even on the smaller islands. 20 year ago you’d had to go to a cyber cafe to do your internet business (it took a year to even get a phone line, the OTE was that inefficient) but now you can get decent speed internet even in a tiny village. I guess they got EU subsidies for that, they get money from the EU for lots of things. Can’t have a GREXIT.

@Angryguy How is it in Greece at the moment?
There are a lot of restrictions and the media is full on scaring people. I can still get around but limited where I can go. We will see if restrictions get worse later this winter. I need to buy a place so hope I can get a place before a permanent shut down comes.

Greece has the misfortune of being a big Cold War political dialectical battleground, and has a historically very-influential jew population through their colony at Thessaloniki.

Are a lot of Greek citizens on board with the Covid hoax, or do they seem to be more suspicious and questioning than Canadians and Americans?

The population is older than average. And I find old people just as on board as canadians. I think overall amongst younger people they are less on board. But the old population hurts the country.
