Here we are. . .back on the Road to Residency! And once again it is leading us through the Land of Limbo.
|The Road to Residency always something new along the way|
As our regular readers know, we are American expats who've now been living almost full-time in Greece for the better part of five years. For that reason, our rural slice of the Greek Peloponnese feels like home. We have our routines and chores, we have our friends and social life. We have our doctors and dentists. When you are recognized at regulars at a beauty shop, you know you've settled in.

This residency renewal comes at a time when just a couple countries away from us, people who had a rhythm of life and a norm, are fleeing their country to stay alive. It is a stark contrast and one that puts the hurdles of the renewal process in perspective, but yet, doesn't make the process any easier or less stressful.
