Well from the great perspective we would the crew we live there in November 3 months ago and it was not good then let's be honest but.
-- -- last week three months later on and it was a huge difference.

They don't have piles of drachmas right now in the buying vaults and they would have to put people on board is to stop before -- contracts that context physically taking euros out of Greece to be complete mayhem.
Civil Disobedience as we've seen now will be widespread so.
They know that's the alternatives so this does like a marathon to Greece and not -- -- as the markets are trading -- really does but in the short term talked about the silly kids -- at school because they don't have enough food to be true yes absolutely intolerant people told people who we spoke to said you know my child's school in this.
