What Thessaloniki is to me

On each and every wall graffiti,
sometimes dirty, but often pretty.
Dessert stores and bakeries on every corner
and an undecipherable language for a foreigner.
An awesome hostel with lovely peeps
and old Roman stuff, of which they have heaps.
Churches, catacombs and an arch,
towers and city wall remains, very large!
Two kisses when you meet,
free water and dessert (!) wherever you eat.
Free chips or sweets with your drink
and even more passionate talking then you would think.
Handsome dark men with big sunglasses
and gorgeous (very visible) legs on every women that passes.
Iced coffee plays a very big part
and you should see the museums of Modern Art.
They are a great escape from the blistering heat,
also the photography museum is neat.
Water and a port nearby...
Conclusion: Thessaloniki is FLY!

Roman Agora, circled by big apartment buildings. 

What would it be like living there?
In hallway of church by Rotonta...

Again: big apartment buildings in the modern part of town
and then just down, in front of them: Old Roman stuff.
Archeologists are still digging and searching.

Piece from Yang Yongliang in
the Museum of Contamporary Art.
Everywhere on the streets
Churches pop up...

Pictures from Chris Jordan
in the Museum of Photography.
At the port
Door, obviously :)

View from the boardwalk...
Too dirty to swim, but nice view!
Wall, next to my hostel

Lovely Greek sun!

So, this is what it looks like
when you order
a fresh orange juice...
Every house I was in, they had these
in a little cupboard or on a shelf.

One of many!
