Greece Warns Holidaymakers To Take Cash

Despite the recent rearrangement of the deckchairs on the sinking Trireme, wrt the sidelining of Varoufakis, Greece is still very much on the precipice.

Municipalities have refused to comply with the central government's smash and grab raid on local cash reserves, and have demanded to know what the cash will be used for and whether Syriza will be honouring its election pledges.

Faced with the reality of capital controls and bank runs, the Greek tourist board in London has advised holidaymakers going to Greece to take euros in notes and coins in case then ATMs are switched off (which seems very likely in the not too distant future).

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has weighed in, and said that travellers should take "enough money to cover emergencies and any unexpected delays".

It is going to be long hot summer in Athens this year!
