Sightseeing in Pink Heels

I went to visit the Acropolis at the end of March for the first time. Fascinating to be there with a fantastic view over the city. However, the whole hill and most paths around it consist of quite slippery smooth rock and I was happy to be wearing trainers.

I was impressed and amused when I spotted the lady below in her pink heels, wobbling around in slow motion supported by a friend, both trying not to lose grip.

On my way down the hill I spotted her again when she photographed street art. I think it took her forever to make her way down as this was less than 5 minutes from the exit and I had been sitting in the sun for a good hour before I met her there.

I like to wear nice dresses but definitely comfortable shoes with them. Would you go sightseeing in heels?

The 90s are Back

On my first day in Athens I was enjoying the mid-February sun in the park in Kypseli. After Iceland it felt like a warm summer day to me, when I spotted this girl and her dog.

I had to take a picture of her, because I haven’t seen these kind of plateau shoes in action since the Spice Girls. Turns out they are quite popular here. Maybe because the average Greek girl is rather short…? I think there are some fashion trends that should stay dead. Those shoes are one of them.

Still on #OneWeek100People2019

Second last of my people doodle pages from the One Week 100 People challenge. Now fully coloured. Had a short break from drawing as I was entertaining visitors the last weeks in and around Athens.

Big thank you to Gabriela for the inspiration to put in speech bubbles. Put the idea straight to action in this doodle. Also check out her brillant blog Artschaft about art gems and  her exploration of paintings.
