They are doing nothing. I was in Greece in September and October and there is nothing. I've been talking to a friend there who owns hotel in Athens for over a year and finally thought he was ready to go to his rural property in Crete over the New Year. We talked about all aspects of preparedness. While I was there he asked questions at his gas station and grocery store and all were totally ignorant. I called him last week and he's totally not done anything and isn't going to Crete now either. If I'm not there talking to him, he totally forgets.
