Sometimes it’s just too much to even look at these. Today I put some as backgrounds on my lappy. I miss Yiayia and her stupid talk about boyfriends and why I dye my hair blue. Paps just used to sit there sipping coffee and beaming at me. It’s not fair. They are my flesh and blood but they won’t come to England. They think they are too old…..Yiayia has never been out of Greece, never been on a plane. What a life…just being at home all day learning how to cook and bringing up her kids. My Dad and my Aunt Sophia. God, she is a weirdo though! I dunno…I kinda liked her but she was so loud. Like, why dye your hair blonde if you have got naturally BLACK hair and olive skin? No! I would LOVE to have black hair and olive skin! Look at me. To say I am Half Greco, it sucks really that I took Mum’s complexion! WHY GOD, WHY?????
‘Itan para poli wraia na se xerw…..elpizw oti mia mera, tha ksanasinandoume…tha mou leipseis poli’
I don’t know if I remember that right….D wrote it down in English letters for me and wouldn’t translate it. I lost it though, I have looked everywhere for it. I didn’t dare ask dad in case it’s something ‘personal’ hahaha. I can’t google it to translate because it’s not in proper Greek letters………Damn!
Some more shots of the city of light!
this one is near where we got off the bus in the centre. I LOVE the way it looks so intense with the shops and apartments stacked up…and then an ancient church next to it.
a random night shot along the port front….can you tell I was wasted? hahaha
D took this…right down a step nearly touching the water in the port. I was too drunk to do it I would have landed in there for sure!
around the same area by day…
random backstreet shot
D made me go up the White Tower even though I was shitting myself. He took this so I would be able to see the view at least from a camera. He called me ‘Kota’ which I believe is CHICKEN.
ancient ruins in the midst of this heaving and wonderfully mad city centre! All the shops round here are hippy/goth/arty.
abandoned baby! Oh yeh!
one of the cafe’s where I drank copious Frappe’s (gliko me gala!)
We walked this strip til we wore it down I reckon!
random cool shot of nice buildings…The National Bank I think
Some big protest…….can’t remember what about. Apparently it’s always happening. Good!
Oh MAN look at those apartment buildings!
What does Casey want for Christmas? One of those blue ones! Er…dream on.
Oh I was sent this video…D says it is one of the best (traditional) Greek singers and the song is about Thessaloniki.

Σ ΑΝΑΖΗΤΩ ΣΤΗ ΣΑΛΟΝΙΚΗ
