athens walks: mets

October 22, 2010

I decided I want to be a tourist in my own city, walk around the neighbourhoods I usually drive past by and just look at the buildings and try to find something still hidden! The weird thing is there are a lot of unknown places waiting to be discovered even when you think you ‘ve seen it all! So this weekend it was the Mets, first we walked around the 1st Cemetery like 2 happy ghosts trying to find Vougiouklaki’s grave 🙂 (i know) and then while climbing the steep Trivonianou we blinked and missed Sugarline’s shop. If you decide to sightsee around Mets don’t forget to pay a visit (make her a call first). Bianca thanks for the picture!

 Just a few steps away you will find la.trap featured also on HariK’s blog. Minimal with a berlinesque vibe the shop stocks clothes, toys, prints and jewelry some of them displayed inside an old fridge! Oh joy oh joy!

Then just around the corner there is this alley with the dream house for which I could kill. I. am. dead serious.

Street art and me with my denim uniform (of course, boyfriend’s shirt, one of the many I borrow all the time)

And last but not least: colibri. Say that you walk around all day and you could eat literally anything, do you expect that this small joint, with the  kitchen in full view and the tables on the sidewalk, would serve one of the best burgers in town? Well actually yes we did because the people from Athens daily secret had warned us. 🙂
