A document on the elections in Greece, Athens

A cautious, long forgotten smile broke out on the Athenian faces. The unthinkable had happened. Syriza had won, and a new chapter in the history of Greece begins. The deafening chaos that has screeched its way through every aspect of life in this country had been silenced, at least for one night. The coming weeks and months will see how it all unfolds but the sense that democracy, so maligned and mistrusted in this world of economic power games, had been reinstated as the voice of the people was palpable.
