οπωρο-παντο-πωλείον!

Οπωροπαντοπωλείον
means fruit and grocery seller, and
το παραδοσιακόν
means "the traditional".
Such little shops do still exist in neighbourhoods.
This place is called Mets and
is in a walking-distance from Syntagma...

I could find watermelon in this photo.
We can see it in the store only in summer. Of course in Japan.

Nori: we, too, have watermelons only in summer.

Paulo Camacho: Thank you! I like Athens. It has some very nice corners and some awful ones also, like every city.
You just have to want to see the beauty.

I do follow your blog since some time!

Those watermelons look good!

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.
