For Our World entry, I thought I'd share some random street scenes in Athens, during my visit a few years ago.
Everywhere in the street corner is populated with lots of these vendors. It's fascinating to watch locals like them going about their daily lives.
Welcome to the one of the busiest roads in front of the Olympics Stadium complex. The locals seem to rely heavily on cars for transportation, sometimes for only short destinations.
While wandering aimlessly around the city, I encountered this cop on duty. He was pretty cool and didn't mind me taking his picture.
If you like shopping, this is your paradise. Many shoppers are seen on Ermou street, the commercial street of Athens. I don't like shopping but it's a good place to eat or just sit and enjoy people watching.
Throughout the city, rings of bread covered with sesame seeds are commonly sold at street corners, in bakeries and people can be seen walking along the streets, snacking away on these simple, yet satisfying treats.
More often than not, you'll come across a lot of this kind of graffiti on many old, abandoned buildings not far away from the Acropolis. It seems a shame, but scenes like this often catch my attention.
As we walked along, I discovered a huge collection of paintings lying along the sidewalks of the street. Some of them are tastefully painted but such a pity that they're left unattended.
While heading towards Acropolis, we bumped into a group of tattooed guys. It's hard to tell if they're gangsters but you don't wanna mess with them. This photo has been cropped for a closer view.
