umbrellas

It was raining heavily today.
Here you can see a lot of umbrella-sellers
at the exit of Synagma metro station.

These are very cheap umbrellas,
of the worst quality
(they get destroyed on the spot while wind blows)
but they have very live and happy colors!

Same story here. I preferred to invest a little more on a good umbrella... and for men, it's more embarassing to have their umbrellas destroyed or turned upside down by the wind (because of a popular expression here).

That's something I have never experienced, rain in Athens..

I guess these umbrellas would look good if used like parasols ;-)

I would need one of those around here today as it has been raining all day!

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.
