Tonight me & my husband went to the centre to meet 5 Aussie friends for drinks & dinner. After dinner two of them went to meet other friends, so we stopped down Makrigianni for a drink with the other 3 as they were staying at the Hera hotel.
Just walking them down to the hotel before we called Beat to go home, we were approached by a man saying ‘it’s early yet, come for a drink at my friends bar’, I said Reina?, no way!’ & ranted at him in Greek with a few unsavoury words & told him to eff off & leave my friends alone! I explained in English to my friends what was going on & it was a scam that would cost them a fortune, meanwhile the guy was cursing me in Greek, so my husband was having a good go back at him! He was so angry, mainly because now he couldn’t scam anyone within hearing distance of the exchange of words :)
Thankful to have saved a potential nightmare for our friends on their last night, I only wish I could be there every time that odious specimen approached tourists :(
