Downtown Scenes

No gelato for me. Lactose intolerant 😦
Atlas would look great on my bookshelf.

Just a few street photographs from downtown Athens on a cloudy rainy day from a few days ago.

And now it is hot again! Crazy weather. And I put away most of my summer clothes.

Dream a Little Dream..

I took a stroll through the Psirri district of Athens. Little Kook cafe always has the best decorations. This seasons’ theme is Peter Pan.

Come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned.” Peter Pan

“Stars are beautiful, but they may not take part in anything, they must just look on forever.” Peter Pan

“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” Peter Pan

Ancient Downtown

At your own risk 😉
Cute instruments.
Wise words to live by.

Kalo Mina! (Happy New Month!)

As happy as anyone can be in these difficult times.

Resilience is the key. I am fearful of October..Let us pray!

These are a few street photos from a month ago that I took around the area of the Acropolis, Plaka, as well as the shopping district of Monastiraki. Of course it wasn’t as crowded as other years, but there were quite a few tourists.

I will be avoiding the downtown area as cases of Covid-19 have gone up there and I want to avoid the metro too.

It was a nice day for a trip down town. It was a warm week before the winter chill came back again.

Ήταν μια ωραία μέρα για μια βολτα στο κέντρο της πόλης. Ήταν μια ζεστή εβδομάδα λιγο πριν το κρύο ερθει ξανα.
