Metaxourgeio: Where ugly things are beautiful

I found this garden in a parking lot

This poster says “Fascists keep out of our neighbourhoods”. It advertises an event against the threat of fascism in many poor (and  sometimes not poor) neighbourhoods of Athens

I went to Metaxourgeio, an “up-and-coming” area of Athens, but very different (until now) from Gazi or Psyrri. It’s where you see many ugly things that are beautiful and sometimes beautiful things that are ugly. What made me happy was that many people were outside, eating in cheap, small places and discussing how they can make their neighbourhood a better place.
