Yesterday was an interesting day, full of political developments and news fever. I thought I should translate today’s most notable Greek newspaper front pages to give you a clue of this mornings atmosphere. But allow me to begin with a French cover which I found extremely to-the-point as well as aesthetically beautiful.
No need to translate.
