Thessaloniki and its collectors

One more exhibition for the 100 years of the Thessaloniki liberation is that at the Byzantine Museum.
It shows souvenirs of the city that are owned by private collectors who gave them to the museum to be shown to the public. A beautiful exhibition but unfortunately my photos weren't very good.

 Ariadne, one of Las Incantadas.

 Well, that I did not know that a Zeppelin had been put down during the First World War in Thessaloniki!

 That same evening another free and very interesting entertainment. We attended a theatrical performance inside the Yeni Cami (New Mosque) in our neighbourhood. The titleof the performance is misleading. It was the stories and accounts of explorers that visited the city at that time after the liberation.
