being a tourist in your own city:street art and the lofts

last week i decided to take a walk in exarheia...and by that i mean walking really slow in order to notice everything that happens in this beautiful and yet misunderstood neighbourhood...i couldn't resist to the beauty of these neglected houses or the graffitis on every wall...







and look this is vasmoulakis' work

























finally i ended up in benaki museum in gazi so i decided to look for the newly built city lofts!it was like going to a completely different world...i kinda like the first one...

  1. Oh, how beautiful pictures...I love these walks in the center of Athens, in the narrow streets where you take your time and observe everything...

  6. I absolutely love the 7th picture! We have something like that in the city I live in, but it's in a really dodgy bit of the town, so I get really terrified even if I'm there with the boyfriend :-(

    Care to exchange links? :-)
