A delightful stroll around Kolonaki last week. We took the bus to Syntagma and then
walked up Pindarou Street. This neo-classical building is very charming - such intricate plasterwork!
On Alopekis Street we came upon this modernist glass building sandwiched between two neo-classical ones: a good development, I think
the building on the left of the development
with an abstract sculpture on the grounds
and the building on the right.
Sweet Alchemy, our next stop
delicious cakes, pastries and chocolate
cakes wrapped in multi-coloured cloth
and lots of Easter eggs.
Next stop was Astrolavos Gallery in Dexameni to view Giorgos Papakarmezis exhibition 'Understand Atlas'.
On our way to Haritos Street we stopped at the top of these steps to look at the view
We just had to go in Les Connaisseurs as we were passing the shop
where the displays are always interesting
I am very taken with these ceramic hens
which are dotted everywhere around the shop
around Easter time
very tastefully arranged
I think they're wonderful
as are these ceramic birds
lots of eggs around as well.
Some street art further down the road
When we reached the square, business was as usual - tons of people sitting in cafes, enjoying the sunshine
