Crisis wedding in Greece

20121024-DS-020-DN-020-OOGGDoing prospection for my Mediterranean Project in the port city of Patras, Greece, I bumped into this weird wedding party. Christos Karalis (44), who married Anna (26), decided to have the party in his petrol station, to save on expenses. "This is how we respond to the crisis", a family member said to me. "Please show these pictures to Merkel. A Greek keeps on laughing and celebrating, even when his money is being taken away."

Late at night traditional Greek music was being played and people started to dance the sirtaki. It was a great party. Not only because of the setting, but also because of the hospitality of the whole family.
