    I'm not convinced either. I think leaving the Euro will hurt Greece in general and make travel less convenient. Unless they peg the neww drachma artificially low, I don't foresee any bargains or surge.

    I can't see how exiting the eurozone would make the situation in Greece any different than it is now. If they bring back the drachma and get rid of the euro, that's not going to give give anybody any more confidence in the Greek economy or the Greek government. It's like putting lipstick on a pig - it's still a pig. :rolleyes:
