And then there’s the Thessaloniki of the 20th century, the stories of a city in the process of modernization, a multicultural environment where Muslims, Jews and Christians coexisted peacefully for centuries and flourished as organized communities whenever there was no war, great fires, or Nazis.
Just don’t make the mistake of asking me about Boniface of Montferrat, Crusader King of Thessaloniki, as I tend to end up talking about him all day long.
But most of all we shall have fun
in a more than two thousand year old city.
And probably the best bougatsa on top of all that.
I hope to see you soon and add you to my list of lovers of Thessaloniki.
