    Striking taxi drivers in Crete have caused disruption to passengers seeking to fly out of the island.
    Protests continued outside of the main Iraklion Airport, with hundreds of taxi owners blockading buses from entering the airport to service arriving and departing passengers.
    More seriously, central Greece saw protesters block off a national highway leading to the Rio-Antirio Bridge connecting southern and central Greece, effectively cutting the country in two.

    This should be interesting in a couple weeks. I'm flying to ATH, driving all around the country then flying to CHQ. Chance of it all working out without problem is 60% imo. But I'm an optimist...
