Athens, Greece â¢ Over the past seven years, austerity has left visible scars in Greeceâs capital.
A walk around Athens reveals more homeless people than ever despite some signs of a rosier economic outlook. Thousands of shops, mostly small businesses, are shuttered here and across the country. In what used to be a busy shopping arcade, closed stores are padlocked against a backdrop of hanging Greek flags.
Whole families can be seen lining up for free meals at a growing number of soup kitchens.
