Moving north, we spent two days in Greece´s second largest, and purportedly “hippest,” city. This proved to us that, when trying to understand a country, two cities is better than one. Can you imagine if someone visited only Texas, and drew a conclusion about America at large? Athens is one of the world´s best cities for history, but it seems to have fallen on grimy times, and it was nice to see that other parts of the country are thriving. See below for a day in the life of Thessaloniki.

I´d guess that 95% of the city is closed on Sunday. "I suppose a depressing picture is in order?" Dan muttered as I whipped out my camera to take a picture of...nothing. Then we boarded a train which was, thankfully, running on Sunday!
