Tsoukou tsoukou

House and home are two different things. House is a place for our body but home is place for our soul. Home is a nest of love and care. Mine nest is this small cafe. A place where a friend is always waiting for me!

In Thessaloniki's downtown at Alexandrou Svolou street 55, day and night, winter and summer, there is always room for warmhearted and friendly people.

Rock music, hot and cool beverages, tasty dishes and refreshing cocktails. Solo or with company, you will never feel alone and you will always make new friends.

Koralia with the pink hair, Anastasia with the black are the two sweet hostesses.

In the countryside

Living in the countryside isn't always pleasant. Boredom can be a daily problem. Places that you've get used to them and they have nothing new to give you. People that tend to be unfriendly with the newcomers.
At those times of total ennui, i take my camera and i go out for treasure hunting. I try to spot new views, corners, plants and animals and see general the same things from a different perspective.

So these are some images from my place in east Thessaloniki.

Osios David Byzantine church

Sometimes, time seems unable to touch and change some places. And sometimes when i am visiting those places, it is like i am going back in my younger age. 
Living in a beautiful house is important, but living in a beautiful place is the most important of all. 
Memories and images of outside life is a gift that none can offer you. 
In my neighborhood where i grew up, all churches are old and they have gardens. Gardens where everyone can sit and spend some time alone or with friends. 
This garden belongs to Osios David Byzantine church, at the Uper old town of Thessaloniki.

Stoa Modiano #2

Stoa is a ancient Greek architectural type, of covered public walkaway. Today Thessaloniki counts dozens of small and big stoas which house markets, offices, bars and restaurants. Stoa Modiano is famous for its food maket and its taverns.

And here an old man who was seeking for a little attention and asked me to take his photo.

In college

Some views of my college's cafe. Here i' ve spent the most important years of my life. And believe me those years are many. My studies took much longer than i ve expected. Sometimes life plays tricks on us, but ''The show must go on''! At least this place is beautiful!

Would you like to listen to a Greek song from a local singer? 
It's a folk nostalgic song, talking about a guy who goes for  a walk to his old neighborhoods of Thessaloniki.  
Nikos Papazoglou the artist.

And for reward one more folk dance with an interesting touch in the end.
