I think we should cover basic needs for all, whcih could range from language to basic free services, links, anything!;)Free and Non -Free.
There's so many services available that even locals have no idea about(we are not as resourceful as foreigners!!!) so that makes it even harder for foreigners to get around,people who have been living all their lives here get lost in their own city!
For starters, I think we can cover the Language issue, THERE ARE places that foreigners CAN learn Greek!
