The Greeks handle crises by striking...and they are striking today.

The ship is stopped at Katakolon, which is site of the first Olympics way, way back when. There's a nice old set of ruins to visit, including the place where the Olympic torch is lit...but no one can go, as the guides are on strike today!

Since the country needs money and since there are boatloads of tourists waiting to spend it...seems strange to be on strike! But then, I'm only a tourist!
