    Red face

    Every September, the Prime Minister of Greece visits Thessaloniki (the city I live) in order to inaugurate the city's International Fair and to give a speech on the economic policy of the government for the following year.



    Due to the recent austerity measures (extra taxation, privatization of public companies etc.) imposed by the government due to the loan taken from the IMF and the EU, social unrest is evident throughout Greece.



    A police force of about 5000 was employed in Thessaloniki in order to protect the Prime Minister and the government, and to quench any violent outbreaks. Although the protest was massive, it was much less violent than previous ones.



    I was there and these pictures (not very good, I know) are from my mobile phone..

    Thanks, my friend..
    This was one of the most peaceful demonstrations, we were all thinking of the worst, as, things here (Greece), are not good at all and most people!!!!!!! do not have a simple job, so can not make it for a leaving, at all.

    Some pictures(I did not take them) of my town and the nature surrounding it

    The town has a lot of churches, this is the most famous one. It is on the market square on the center. Next to it is an old building(the Devils house, named after the satyrs that are on it ) and a new building which are both part of city hall. My boyfriend works there.


    Arnhem is quite famous for it's architecture.


    Here we walk our dog in the weekend. It is part of the biggest national park in Holland.
