The big 48 hour transportation strike is now in effect until Wednesday morning and we have just learned that taxis have also joined in. Brent went to get some items from the deli for the meeting tomorrow as "commercial stores" will be on strike tomorrow. There have been demonstrations going on along with the strikes, but we haven't heard anything about how they have been going. We guess all this is because there is another vote on the austerity measures on Thursday!!! We had another lesson with Yannis tonight. It is great fun meeting with him and he takes the information in so well - he actually teaches us as much as we teach him.
