Today we celebrate our NO.

It was 28 october of 1940, when the Italian
ambassador to Athens, Gratsi went to the home
of the president I. Metaxa, asked for free entrance
of the Italian forces on to Greece.
He immediately gave a negative reply
and with him the Hellenic people answered "oxi"(no).
The war began, the sirens sound, the enemy planes
flew over the skies of Greece, and
the Italian army was on Greek land.
After many fights the day of freedom
came in October of 1944.

What I am looking from my window.

This post is dedicated to Kris.
Every morning when I open my window
I see my house's garden.
Let my explain you some things about my house:
I live on the second floor,my parents live
on the first floor and my grandmother on the groundfloor.
Are you suprised?
In Greece we usually live near our parents.
The ground floor as well as this garden,
they are constracted in 1954 by my grandfather,
it was the 5th house of Peristeri
-now Peristeri is one of the most
populate areas of Athens.

An old factory.

One of the factory of Gazi outside and inside.
Gazi it means gas .
So with this explanation you can imagine
the production of the factory.
Inside we can find many old ovens -
now they are decorated with candles.

This photo from Gazi festival,
reminds me the following lyrics:
Cause your eyes, your eyes they burn like fire.
And your eyes, your eyes they burn like fire.
Α juggler present his prowess playing with fire.

Athens trolley.

This is the second photo of Gazi walls.
Now you can see how our trolleys looks like...
When I have time I prefer to take the trolley ,
I am standing on the window and
I observe the people and the buildings and
I create my own 'moving' world.

I am the iron man.

An iron man destroys cars!
Is that bad?
All the concept is to use the
public transport and specialy the trolleys.
This wall is in the trolley depot in Gazi area.
In Gazi these days there is a comic festival,
many concerts and events.
You will see more at my next posts.
