Intro Message

This very blog is based on Giants’ backs, literally their famous mottos, and tries to depict, in a tragicomic way, certain aspects of the current public life of Greece. The latter despite its rich history and tradition is thought to be facing a very bleak and poor future. The truth is that we simply are amid a very crucial turning point of our modern era which needs to be seen without the myopic binoculars of stereotypes. And it is this purpose that this blog hopes to serve best.

P.S. It is also fair to note that the so called author wishes to heighten his skills in regard with the use of foreign languages (Arabic and English). In this respect feel free to comment on any “weird” grammatical structures you come across.
