C’est donc décidé. Je serai en France dans moins d’une semaine pour signer les exemplaires dédicacés de mon premier roman, et une fois que j’ai réglé ces formalités, je pars pour Athènes.
Since it's where things happen, why shouldn't we go there ?
I've followed the news for several weeks and I can ear everything and it's contrary about Greece.
Then, better than being staying asking myself if the country will turn to chaos or if it's once again the nest of a next civilisation, I've decided to go there.
First surprise, and a big one, it seems easy to get a flat. I've found a website where a lot of accommodation are available and with the budget I have, hopefully I will find a place in a central district, or at least in a well deserved one.
The only pepers I'm asked are a copy of my passeport or an I.D. That's a big change compared to the countries I already stayed in. Other surprise : landlords usually don't speak about any contract. Some even notify they won't sign any and everything will be based on trust. I'm still suspicious but I'm waiting to be there, to visit places and to meet people, before being able to say. It might be swindling as it might be a way not to pay taxes, in this case, it should be difficult to find some places with rents as low as the ones purposed on this website.
So, it's decided. I will be in France to sign the autographs on my first published novel, and then I'm going to Athens.
