Just a few photos of downtown Athens on a very hot July day. As a permanent resident of Athens, I normally avoid going downtown often in July; especially during the daytime, because only Crazy people do that. But, I had to do some summer shopping and there were some good sales, so why not?

Μερικές φωτογραφίες του κέντρου της Αθήνας σε μια πολύ ζεστή μέρα του Ιουλίου. Ως μόνιμος κάτοικος της Αθήνας, συνήθως αποφεύγω να πηγαίνω στο κέντρο συχνά τον Ιούλιο,  ειδικά κατά τη διάρκεια της ημέρας επειδή μόνο οι Τρελοί άνθρωποι το κάνουν αυτο. Αλλά, έπρεπε να κάνω μερικές καλοκαιρινές αγορές και υπήρξαν κάποιες καλές προσφορές, οπότε γιατί όχι;

Flower Market/Εκθεση Λουλουδιων

Happy Mother’s Day!

I bought some very inexpensive flowers from this little flower market in the Northern Suburbs of Athens. There was music, dancing and flowers.  Looks like we are prepping for summer!

Αγόρασα μερικά πολύ φθηνά λουλούδια από αυτή την μικρή αγορά λουλουδιών στα βόρεια προάστια της Αθήνας. Υπήρχε μουσική, χορός και λουλούδια. Φαίνεται ότι είμαστε έτοιμοι για το καλοκαίρι!

My long time favourite quote. People go through so much in their lives and a nice gesture or compliment can make a big difference in a persons’ life.

Enemy/Εχθρός

Noenemies

The lines have been drawn

The walls have been built

The enemy puffs at the gate

Forever lingering like a loyal dog

The bear, the shark, the snake, and black dog

All symbolize

The enemy, the  foe, the rival

They Claw,

Gnash with their teeth,

 Slither and howl

The tides of hate flow

Back and forth

And in a stormy black sea

 A lonely boat with a white flag

 Pleads for peace

But goes unheard

 Just muffled cries in the dark

Who will win, who will lose

It won’t matter

It will never end.

 

4oo followers!?! WOW!!!!!!Thank you for not being my enemy! 🙂

 


Abandoned/Εγκαταλειμμένο

A neglected teddy bear in a heap of trash.

Thank goodness the garbage strike is over. Bad timing with the awful heat wave. A very unhygenic combination.

Ευτυχώς, η απεργία των σκουπιδιών τελείωσε. Κακή χρονική στιγμή με το φοβερό κύμα καύσωνα. Μια πολύ ανθυγιεινές συνδυασμός.
