In frond of the Parliament.


I have two different versions of a guard
who is standing in frond of
the Parliament.
This traditional dress it is relational to
the greek revolution of 1821.
We called this guard tsolia (τσολιά).
Οn Saturday we have our national celebration
and these days I will have an oblation.

I prefer the first photo as it shows off the vivid colours of the uniform .

Happy national day!

You are right - the very essence of what you often think of when you think of Greece, Athens in particular!

Both shots work well in their own ways, well done.

Excellent photos, with a slight preference for the coloured one. Maybe a cliche when you think of Grece, but it's nice to have them once in a while. Bravo Selana. Et dis-moi, qu'est-ce que c'est qu'une 'oblation' ?

Thanks you all.
It is really a cliche this kind of theme as Nathalie said but sometimes I have to show you my 'touristic' Athens.
An oblation of our National day it is some photos and some notes of our story.
