a tiny balcony in Athens

Finally the long overdue Flim stickers are around Athens ;)

My dear friend and super talented illustrator Flim is in Athens so we went “stickering” around the city today. If you are in the mood for street art hunting you can find his around s.i.x. dogs and Psiri :) 

p.s. Just found out that my blog turned 3 today :) yey :) 

Aways thought that “Poems and Crimes” is one of bars with the the catchiest names in Athens. Apart from the great name, this art bar revamped the dark and usually smelly alley around the bar- probably for the summmer garden- with a bunch of new graffiti. Looks really nice, a refreshing change from the darkness that surrounded it until now. They have verses from Greek poets, scenes from movies, poet portraits…. nice job “Poems and Crimes”, which is in Monastiraki, just below Ag. Irini square.

15mins in Plaka

Meet “Forget me not”, a fresh souvenir shop in Adrianou, the main tourist alley in Athens. Don’t expect to find the mini marble Acropolis or the magnet with your favourite Greek statue in their shop. Get ready for some modern designer souvenirs that so authentically portray daily life and traditions in Greece or give the ancient stories or Aesop’s fables a designer’s twist. One of my favs is the Atlas shopper aka the blue-white tote bag made from the original tin food container used for transporting feta cheese and olive oil.
