In Italy, in Spain, in Portugal and throughout much of the world, people are talking about the recent economic crisis and how it’s changed their lives.  The Crisis has been a constant topic of conversation around dinner tables, in the homes of new friends, and a living study in real world economics for the kids.  So when we arrived in Athens, where so many headlines about The Crisis have been centered, it didn’t take long before the subject arose again and our education continued.  Ride along in a taxi with us through the streets of Athens and hear firsthand about the situation there.
