Если Вы в Афинах Вам стоит заехать в музей Hellenic Motor Museum. Один богатый грек по имени Теодор Карагионис собирал-собирал исторические автомобили, да и решил — что я один-то буду ими любоваться? Взял и открыл музей, и не где-нибудь, а в центре Афин. И не просто открыл, а построил для этого современный комплекс, где помимо музея, расположены магазины, фудкорт, кинотеатр, конференц-зал.
Little Dude and I both stayed home sick today, but I love every minute I get to spend with this crazy boy. He loves his football (butt-ball), Brother Brooks, and his Mama. He also loves both Grandmas who have been able to help out the last few days with a sick child. My mom stayed and helped today, his other Grandma will be here tomorrow, and he is a spoiled little dude. None of these pictures are from today, but I wanted to put them out there. #LittleK#PoorBrooks#Family#Love#Baby#Athens#Georgia
These photos are in the same spot but an hour apart. It was the end of our trip and we were so tired, but knew we had one more sight-seeing day left before heading home so we sucked it up and made the most of it. Woke up early & got to the gate for opening time 8am ☕️. In the first photo we were amongst 3 or 4 people walking up the ramp towards to Acropolis and it was bloody incredible - was super hot but there was just dead silence & you could actually take in the experience 🙏. The second photo was when we leaving... SO. MANY. SWEATY. PEOPLE. and I honestly can’t see one person smiling 🤷♀️. .
Pavlos Melas born 1870, died in 1904. After spending his first few years in Marseilles, France, he moved to Athens where he would complete his education and then join the army. Collaborating with Ion Dragoumis (his brother in law), Christos Kottas (IMRO turned Greek revolutionary) and Bishop Germanos Karavangelis, the group attempted to raise funds to help the Greek cause during the struggle for Macedonia. After accessing the situation in Macedonia, 1904, he entered the region with a small battalion to fight the Bulgarians and Ottoman forces, being killed by the latter. Although his death came too soon, his heroic deeds propelled Greek efforts to intensify in Macedonia, allowing it to be annexed in 1913. #Greece#Hellas#Greek#Ελλάς#Ελλάδα#Έλληνας#Maceodnia#Makedonia#Μακεδονία#Marseille#France#Athens#Αθήνα#Ottoman#GreekHistory#History#Orthodox
Three years after a protest on MLK Day, Athens residents gathered for the third annual Athens MLK Day Parade and Music Festival in downtown. “There wasn’t a lot of events downtown that we saw that brought out a diverse group of people that represented Athens, and that enabled them to engage together. This is an actual event where they’re standing in solidarity because [of] the message of Martin Luther King,” Knowa Johnson said.
