 I have been told that Greece has brought in yet another new law. Apparently all shops now have to close at 9pm. Has anyone else heard about this? Those of you who have recently returned will have more information.

 If true it will certainly hit the gift shops who get a lot of passing trade in the evenings and the supermarkets who stay open so that people on late flights can get their necessary bits of shopping. The shop owners in the holiday resorts only have about four months to earn enough to keep them going through the Winter. Not only that,the Greek government is wringing every euro it can in tax from the people aren,t they cutting their own throats by cutting the income of business people?

Why, at a time of national economic decline which will probably last for a generation or so (well done the euro zone for selling one of your own down the river), would you restrict how long a business stays open and thereby reducing their income and tax take??? I just don't get it. ???

Nothing coming up on Google, so I will believe it when I see it.

This is true. We have just returned home and this new law came into force whilst we were out there. I'm not sure it applies to gift shops, only general supermarkets for some reason. The first night it came in all 3 shops were closed up for 9pm. The second night one or two of the shops may have been open after 9pm but the glass doors were closed (so they looked closed).

Could someone please explain the rationale behind this new law. I'm not saying love me, love me I'm thick, but I don't get it.

I just don't get it.

Well, today it is the first proper rainy day since May!!
A quick look outside of the office, the landscape looks dark and sounds thundery but no for long... Never thought I'd say this - especially after 8 full years in the UK - but I see the rain clouds making a hole for the sun and I'm thinking "noooooooooo!!".
Guilty as charged, but thankfully for you, I am not in control of the weather... and so, it will be sunny again in no time!
