An exhibition everyone should see

And I mean everyone. Yesterday evening I went downtown for the opening of a photographic exhibition that focused on ethnicity and humanity in Greece. It was mind blowing. I can't describe how beautiful the photographs were, so I urge you to go see them for yourselves.

Entrance is free, yes, it will cost you nothing but a little bit of your time to see the amazing work that these people have done. To get there, I took the metro up to Omonia and then a taxi ride to the venue which was EUR 2.80. But alternatively, you can get on a bus from 28th October street in the direction away from Omonia square. I can't tell you the name of the stop so while you are on the bus, track the building numbers that pass on your right. Get off when you get to either Cinema Aello or building 144. From there you can walk to Negri Fokionos in a few minutes.
If you click on the map to enlarge it, I've tried to show the directions.

Go discover the colours of the city we live in!
