Lisbon -- A snapshot from our Mouraria Street Party in Lisbon, which was held earlier this month in conjunction with Obscura Day. As one might guess, lots of fun was had by all!
While working our way through a few of Keramikos’s side streets, we spy a street vendor grilling up souvlaki. The neighborhood’s low rents and old-time Athens feel have lured creative young Athenians to the area, but Keramikos is still home to traditional establishments and humble street vendors. It’s a place where old and new, tradition and forward-looking creativity, all coexist happily together.
