It's been high drama with some people threatening to organize a referendum
And the opposition are saying that the coalition parties are "brainwashing" the people regarding euro
Well, the fact is our prices have skyrocketed while the salaries not.
Easier for trade and accounting and of course travel but otherwise meh. Our people are calmer though.
Our techers and doctors striked last year which was huuuuge but otherwise people just leave the country to find a better-paying job.
Not gonna tell you about our government scandals, corrupt as corrupt can be but whatever, I won't probably bother to vote until something changes.
We happened to join euro right in the middle of the crisis but nothing could be changed any more.
