I didn't know what to expect when I traveled to Athens - knew nothing really of the city and the culture and feel of the place. I was delighted to find a vibrant cafe world in the neighbourhood of my AirBnB stay, with street art and other quirky features everywhere.
These faces actually guided me home from a day of exploring the city. They marked the little laneways and turns I needed to make, to get back to my apartment building.
"Welcome to Athens", says the sign with the little guy on the top of the right hand window on this derelict building - indeed!
