The crunch is affecting London & the South East big time. Pete is a London Taxi driver (Black Cabbie) & he has noticed over the last year a massive decrease in his income, he now earns less than half of what he used to. Fortunately he owns his cab,all be it being quite old ! (a bit like us needs some repairing!!! ) He often used to pick up city financial workers, but now they are not allowed to take a cab unless they pay for it themselves, most now catch a tube or walk.
Things are going to take a long while to recover not just here but in many countries. We do hope that it does'nt have too much effect on Crete & Greece as it would be devasting to the tourist industry. We are really wanting to return this year, but we may not make it After having a 3 week holiday in & around Crete last year & having such a wonderful time we will be sad not to return this year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we may pick up a good deal.
