Just back from Corfu and one noticeable thing that I have never experienced in Greece before was begging on the streets. Not loads of it but a number of times in Corfu town and at the supermarket. The latter was a really persistent youth asking for a euro who was there with an adult male who was observing. I was tempted to let him have the trolley euro until I saw the adult with him. I guess it must be a sign of the times with the economy shrinking by 7%, but wondered if other people had noticed it.
