On the 1st of March, every girl in Greece wears a bracelet called "march", made of a red and a white thread weaved together, in order not to get sun-tanned and to maintain a princess-white face!
Here you can see an advanced option: the tradition-combined-with-fashion!!

It's always interesting (and sometimes funny) to learn different customs and traditions. This one is very nice and I knew nothing about it. Beautiful shot full of colors!

Thank you all!
I like learning about customs and traditions too!

Athens, the capital of Greece, with more than 3.000.000 people....
It's not just ancient ruins and pollution.
Its' also the suburbs, everyday people, gardens, bitter orange trees.
