GREECE PART 1

And I am back from my "very" short trip to Greece
500 pictures all with a different story behind
Let me guide you through my Hellenic journey

Let´s go to the right corner of Europe




All started in those stairs,



In this metro station
btw: you are not allow to take pictures inside the metro (don´t ask me why I know this, :S)



I tried to get I few shots of every day life in Athens,
this is the result:





Playing backgammon in every corner, they say this game is if not the oldest boardgames invented one of the oldest







A priest



Old folks playing chess







An Evzones, or Evzoni, the Greek soldier dress up in the old uniform, they say just stronger and better looking soldiers can become Evzones



A graduation in the Athenian University



An old woman reading a novel at the Acropolis museum, yeap she doesn't care about ancient history because she is ancient history




A craftsman working on a new chair



The most common shop in all Athens, the kiosk, you could buy anything there, some where open 24/7 and had camera surveillance



Yes, in Athen was easy to have a small "detail" with your girlfriend/boyfriend because these guys with flowers were everywhere


Having lunch in a restaurant with the longest menu I've ever seen




And of course me



The other thing I found quite impressive was the great amount of street art you could find all around Athens, they say "the biggest is one city's financial crisis the biggest is it art scene" in this case, it may be true.



























As you know, Greece is famous for the ruins, but for those who visit Athens, is also famous for the old stuff you can find everywhere still useful:

Old bikes:



Old cars:







All kind of old stuff





Old hidden restaurants





Old food:



Old trees: :)



Old spices:



Old park with and old passage:



Old crafts already forgotten in many countries



Old painter studio



old rails



old buildings?







And last one to say bye



-all pictures by me-
(except the one they took to me, obviously, :) )

magnífico baby, cada día se te dan mejor la foto, el facehunter a tu lado un aficionado, este si que es un buen retrato de grecia, no hace falta que salgan griegas con gafas de pasta enorme y zapatos de plataforma xD
