hi its about an article found on the times online :
here's the context : "
Ten years ago all you needed was the venerable Rough Guide to Greece. Athens is no longer just rough, though, and there are now smooth style guides such as the Wallpaper* Guide and the StyleCity Guide"

here's my translation, even if i'm not satisfied: "
Il y a 10 ans, vous aviez uniquement besoin du vénérable « Rough Guide to Greece ». Pourtant, Athènes n’est plus simplement rustique. Il y a, à présent, des guides raffinés, tels que le Wallpaper* Guide ou le guide StyleCity. "

thanks a lot,
thibaut

    Hello,
    The 'Rough Guide' refers to eating 'rough' (dans les restaurants très bon marché), sleeping 'rough" (dans les camping, hôtels zero étoiles) etc. Donc il ne s'agit pas de 'rustique' mais de bonne marché.
