Today I went to the market, in Thessaloniki.  If you really want to get a feel for the culture you have to check out the markets.  You can get everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, to fresh fish and meat, to clothing, shoes, and accessories, even things for the home, table linens and curtains.  Everything is cheaper at the markets and it's always bussling with people.  The stand vendors are always yelling something out to get your attention and the atmosphere is really lively.  I took this picture of the olives because I don't think I've ever seen so many olives and different types before.  Sometimes they'll even let you have a sample so that you can see which ones you would rather buy.
Every town in Greece has their own market on a different day.  wherever you visit ask to find out when the "Laiki" will be taking place...it's definitely worth a visit.

cotton candy sky

I love looking up into the clouds...when I was a kid I would always stare up into the clouds trying to figure out what animals or shapes I could see in them.  Has anyone else ever done that?  I don't know anyway, give it a try you'll be amazed at what you'll notice.  I was able to snap these pictures one afternoon...I always carry my camera around with me cause you never know when you're going to need it.  I'm in love with the colours of the sky, soft pinks and purples and a hazy blues remind me of the carnival and cotton candy :D

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I just love watching artists at work.  This artist was set up near Aristotelous Square and he was painting the White tower that can be seen along the waterfront.  I really enjoy drawing its been a passion of mine since I was little.  My parents tell me that before I was speaking I was drawing.  I usually like doing portraits and abstract, but my medium, is either pencil, conte, charcoal or pen.  I'm not good at painting so I always find it interesting to see painted art work, the way streaks of colors blend together to form a picture.  xoxoChiika
