A few words about Thessaloniki…

The White Tower (Lefkos Pirgos) A friend of mine asked me to help her find material for a project about Thessaloniki. All she needs is a small paragraph about the city, starting with “Thessaloniki is…”. I’d really appreciate it if some of you found the time to write a couple of words – good or bad doesn’t matter.

Here is what I have to say…

Thessaloniki for me is her people, her seaside, her warmth. She has a unique way to embrace you, welcome you and make you her own. No descriptions however are enough to make you feel this atmoshpere! You cannot feel it if you haven’t walked from Aretsou bay until the White Tower (or Lefkos Pirgos as we call it), to continue with a cup of coffee at Aristotelous square and finish drinking ouzo at Athonos plaza. Thessaloniki for me if the city I grew up, the city I loved and the city that I’ll always have at the best place of my heart.

I’d like to hear the thoughts of others about my favorite city as well 🙂
