A few weeks ago, we asked Greeks living abroad to send us photos with the view from their window, so we would create an album with pictures from all over the world. Their response was spectacular, and we can’t thank them enough for participating.
So, what do the Greek ‘neomigrants’ see outside their windows? It is out great pleasure to present our New Diaspora photo collection from three continents, and we are hoping that next time we will also receive submissions from Africa, Australia and South America.

“Hampstead, NW London, UK:
You see mainly two different types of people: retired middle-class elderly and well-off mid-30s who recently started a family and moved here in search of some safety and stability within the city. Then you also see the odd me – a tenant who managed to get a place here by pure luck.
The expensive, local gym is packed with women who have never worked in their lives, eeeh I mean, don’t work during the morning hours, the park is full of healthy runners and organic-product-addicts, the local grocery is a Marks and Spencer where you get 30g of nuts for £3.00. That is, if you don’t go organic.
On a different note, Hampstead is one of the few areas close to central London that absolutely spoils you with its beauty. It reminds you that there is oxygen in this city, there are non-chain restaurants with delicious cuisine, and it’s home to London’s most beautiful park, Hampstead Heath. It reminds you that Sundays are for walks, rather than hangovers, and that sitting at a coffee shop, without a laptop, for more than an hour is not a crime, it’s leisure time that you deserve.”
