Athens these days!!!
I am here in Athens before my trip to Cyprus. I have much time to myself and with the camera in my hand I take long walks in the centre of Athens walking for hours – something that I love doing. I am trying to capture in pictures what is going on lately with the economic problem and I state below some true facts about life in Greece in general these days.
It is the Sales Season, but the picture you get is disappointing
Material things are bought only if it is essential. Accessories and expensive shoes are not included in the list of essentials. Eatable things are more popular instead! Grocery shops might be full of people, but still people refuse to buy the quantities or the quality of things they used to buy some years back. They buy much cheaper goods even if they know they are not nutrient. Everything is SO EXPENSIVE, and salaries are getting lower and lower almost every other month. Petrol is so high and people are fed up with the whole situation.
I really have to admit how I pity shop owners in general these days
I have much free time to myself, and as I love walking I take long walks the time I am not with the kids. I have taken some photos which I wish to share with you in my entries. Some of them show interesting sights and others, show life in Athens in general.
