How the Cyprus bailout plan will work
It is a slow day in a little Cyprus Village. The sun is beating down and the streets are deserted.
The owner gives him some keys and, as soon as the visitor has walked upstairs, the hotelier grabs the €100 note and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.
The butcher takes the €100 note and runs down the street to repay his debt to the pig farmer.
The Cabaret/Taverna owner passes the money to the local prostitute drinking at the bar, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer him "services" on credit.
The prostitute then rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill to the hotel owner with the €100 note.
The hotel proprietor then places the €100 note back on the counter so the rich traveller will not suspect anything.
At that moment the German traveller comes down the stairs, picks up the €100 note, Sayys that the rooms are not satisfactory, "Your version of 4 star is not my version of 4 star", pockets the money, and leaves town.
No one produced anything.
