Location - Mediterranean Europe; Capital - Athens; Population - 12 million; Currency - Euro

I took another one way flight and about £100 looking for work in the Mediterranean, this time in Faliraki on the Greek island of Rhodes in the Summer of 1995.

I mention in my Spain section that when I go abroad to work, I completely forget to take any photos until a day or two before I leave (when everyone else has already flown home). In Greece I excelled myself - I took a grand total of one..
