One Good Life in Los Angeles takes on the world – cat in the Plaka area, Athens

Plaka, Athens

Our last night in Athens I took one look back at the Plaka area as we walked back to our hotel.

This cat sitting in the doorway, the twin of my Tuxedo cat Friday, seemed to be bidding us farewell. Or maybe he was just waiting for dinner.

Wikipedia has a good description of the Plaka: Pláka (Greek: Πλάκα) is the old historical neighborhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporating labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Plaka is built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens. It is known as the “Neighbourhood of the Gods” due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites.Plaka, Athens ceramic tile

One of my hobbies is painting kiln-fired ceramic tiles. This scene inspired me to paint a tile in my “Places” series.

It's a great excuse for getting outside, wandering around and stopping to look at things.
