Municipality asleep on the job

One would expect that city events would be advertised on the website of the City of Athens (www.athens.gr) but the English language site was last updated in December of last year. Its news section reported the death of the creator of Tom and Jerry and the return to earth of the Discovery – along with the weather forecast for December 20-21. In links to other sites, there is a wealth of information on what is going on in places like Amsterdam, but nothing about Athens, even though most foreigners try to get a first impression of a city via the Internet. Instead of information on the city, they get a CV of current Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis.
