There are two kinds of roads in athens.

One is the central city road. Very wide, it crosses all the (former) middle class neighborhoods and ends bang on the acropolis.

Old, heavy, filled with shops, cars, immigrants.

The other is the northern district road. More new, empty apart from car dealership shops and expensive private clinics.


When a PM goes to his office every morning, the road he uses to cross athens to his office is regulated with traffic cops for half an hour.


You could say the road is closed (if you're outside trying to get in) or free (if you're inside)


The former PM closed the northern suburbds road.

The current PM closes the central city road.


That's why I like the current PM

Meh. Cormac McCarthy did it better.

What is he doing that is so urgent, every day, that he needs to shut down a road at all? Seems rather satrapish to me.

You need to know who someone is before you can decide if you agree with him?
