In late 2011 Greece was embroiled in a major financial crisis. The people of Greece had embarked on a prolonged and relentless series of protests and riots in Syntagma Square, in central Athens. I took this as an opportunity to cover a foreign period of civil unrest and ventured out to Athens with a colleague. During the course of a week I attended day and night protests which were some of the most tense and exciting I had attended in my career to date. The Greek Riot Police were everywhere, spot searches were in place, and tension was in the air.
