Finding a way home

The Athens Flea Market in the Monastiraki area of the Plaka, is always a colourful place to walk around.  No fleas, but many bargains to make you itch. The trash and treasure of a nation is exhibited here for sale. Furniture, old and new, wooden, plastic, silver and gold, old weapons and baby toys, vinyl records, remember them? and record players to play them on. For something valuable, you'll find it here, for something completely useless, you'll also find it here. More interesting than the trash and treasure for sale, are the faces and characters of the traders that set up their stalls here. You'll find it very entertaining.
