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.

    1. I don't know about the woman. I don't know about the old man either. However the owners of the shops told me that he has some connection to the stoa's property.
