byzantine view

This is the front side of Church Agioi Theodoroi, a beautiful small building of 11th century, in a central point of Athens.
Today, it was a very cold but also very sunny day, and there were some tourists visiting the church.

And this it the back side, a quiet (and relaxing for the eyes) place to have a coffee (in summer!).

angyra Editions

An old house on Solonos street (a street full of bookshops) has been renovated and is now used as a -children books mainly- bookshop by the Angyra Editions. The back yard has been covered by a glass-roof and transformed into a cosy little coffee shop.
(More photos and details-in-Greek, here).

This is Metamorfosi tou Sotiros Church, in Chalandri.
Yesterday we were invited to a friend's marriage there, at 13:00.
People (and the groom) were waiting for the bride to come, in a sunny but freezing cold day.

last year' s snow

No, not this winter...! This is a last year's photo, last February, in Ilion.
A quite rare scene for Athens - its not a usual thing in this city the roads to be closed and people not to go to work!
A nice chance for snow playing and... taking photos from the balcony!!

Korai Square


This might not be what one would call a nice picture, but it is one I thought to share with people the very moment I saw it: a series of empty free-press boxes, ugly but colorful. Only if you could see them full, every morning at 07:30, and people passing and grabbing the morning papers…
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.
