"to live a dog's life".
Here is a live example of it!

Warm, book-smelling and quiet.
Who would ask for more?

odours!

ΤΗΑΤ is what everybody does (and eats) on Holy Sunday morning, in Greece.
Ιn the back yard, on the pavement, anywhere out of the house.
Families, neighbors, friends, all together.
Eat, drink, and listen to (loud) music.

green salads and beetroots

Every Saturday: street market in Ilion.

(Even on Holy Saturday:
Today, people buy bunches of green onions,
lettuces and lots of dill, to cook with lamb's haslets,
and make a soup called "magiritsa",
eaten only on this day of the year.)

Visiting friends: their nice balcony and plants.
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.
