Season's Greetings from Athens

writes from Athens Greece
Greece in pictures

A few days before Christmas and shortly after the terrible riots in big cities of Greece, we can try to feel the atmosphere with some pictures and feel better. The riots started after the killing of a 15 year old boy in Athens. But, Christmas cannot exist without the smile of children and we must dedicate this time to children. May all we smile and feel good with love in our hearts.

Καλές Γιορτές σε όλο τον κόσμο και χαμόγελα στα παιδιά !

A small boat with lights and ornaments looks more "greek".
Μια βαρκούλα στολισμένη είναι πολύ όμορφη και πιο "ελληνική".

Lights everywhere. Φώτα παντού.

How Athens city looks like this year. Syntagma Square by night.
Κοντά στο Σύνταγμα η Αθήνα φαίνεται κάπως έτσι το βράδι.
