The Two Biggest Surprises From My First 24 Hours In Greece

•, Joe Weisenthal
 I've been on the ground here in Athens for about 24 hours, and at this point I have two surprise observations related to the situation Greece finds itself in.

First, I have yet to meet anyone new who thinks Greece is about to leave the Eurozone.

That includes the cab driver I talked to yesterday, who thinks Europe is on the verge of WWIII, to market traders, and journalists. None really think it could happen, and mostly that seems to be on the basis of the fact that very few people in Greece want Greece to leave the Eurozone. Barring the radical left and right, everybody thinks a Greek exit would be catastrophic, chaotic, and undesirable.
