Welcome Back Siesta
While everywhere in the world Spring has just started, here it already moves to the summer season. Greek Sun shines more and more and local people hide in cafes by drinking coffee or stay in the home. You can't find any shops open and streets of the town are empty. What could happen you will ask me... Well, it is Siesta Time! A siesta is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal. Such a period of sleep is a common tradition in many southern countries, and of course in Greece.
Taking a long lunch break including a nap is common in a number of Mediterranean, tropical, and subtropical areas. Just imagine, The Washington Post of 13 February 2007 reports at length on studies in Greece that indicate that those who nap have less risk of heart attack.
Frankly speaking, I love Siesta and it's a really important thing in Greece. All my family is sleeping in these hours but most of the times I have chess classes in this time. If you are not sleeping you can stay awake by drinking coffee, cold tea or juices, any drink which will keep your mind fresh and clean.
Spring Siesta is not the same as summer one, so we have decided to shoot some pictures in the streets of Corfu Town. Now people spend a lot of time outside with their children, grannies feed local street cats, dogs enjoy the sun in balconies and grandpas drink greek coffee with their friends.
To explore the town in Siesta I was wearing beautiful dress with cute embroidery animals and absolutely wonderful Hat Bag from Gamiss. It's just my favorite bag for now cause it's so unique and pretty. It has beautiful pink lining and can be styled as bag or backpack. You gonna see it a many time I guess, cause I want to have it with me all the time.
Concluding, I adore all the pictures from this photoshoot. It's exactly how looks Corfu Town in Greek Siesta. I'm sure you can feel the atmosphere and enjoy the outstanding views of lovely streets, squares and alleys.
