After 24 days we made it back to Tallinn and I am happy to be home. Not that I had a bad time, if you don’t count the sunstroke, bogans, bad accommodation, thieves and expensive missed connections it was great. Actually it wasn’t so bad, things I liked about Greece
- Food with flavour, remember that?
- Friendly people
- Getting enough tan to peel for the first time in 6 years
- People just don’t seem to give a shit, in a good way

Things I prefer about being at home
- I can flush toilet paper and not forget and then have to fish it out of the toilet bowl
- Being in a country where the last great achievement it had was less than 2000 years ago
- Shit works
I can’t decide: do you want to live in country where the people are happy and friendly but the country is fucked and nothing gets done or do you want to live in a country where the people are less talkative, bordering on depressed in the middle of winter however they know how to work and shit gets done?

My parting thought from Greece is that they have a good place, a rich culture and a good way of life but THAT DOESN’T MEAN WE SHOULD BE IN A MONETARY UNION WITH THEM. I think the Euro should be for central and northern Europe, cause Mediterranean people are just too bat shit crazy. God bless ’em but they are crazy. Slovenia is ok and could we somehow have just the north of Italy? I’m drawing this line across the continent because your average Swede/German/Pole/Estonian will never really known what it is like to have your head baked by hot sun 300 days a year. Its the sun which drives them mad, your brain gets cooked like an egg. Let the Greeks/Italians/Spanish have their own crazy currency. Call it the “crazo” where instead of gold reserves they have reserves of mummas cooking to under write treasury bonds.
What is inside the average Greek persons head, god bless ’em
