Today I’m taking a break from life aboard The Queen Elizabeth and I’m roaming the streets of Athens. We’re about to meet up with Nikos Tonga, a graphic designer who paints the walls of this ancient city under his street art name; Rude. He also does guided art tours for a company called alternative Athens. He’ll walk us through what’s happening in the alleyways under the acropolis, and fill us in on how the economic crisis has affected the arts scene here.
