Has Greece changed in new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras' first week?

Greece's new prime minister completes his first tour of Europe on Wednesday, meeting the head of the European Commission in Brussels and the French president in Paris.

Alexis Tsipras is trying to negotiate a better deal for his country's massive debt, and an end to what he calls dead-end austerity policies.

Mark Lowen reports from Athens on a busy first week in office for Greece's new leader.
