Ice Cream Vendor, Greece

This Month in Photo of the Day: Traveler Contest Images

Shot in Rodos, Greece. I was there for four days, walking around, and on the first day I had a chat with the guy that owns the car (the one in the shot) and I told him that my grandfather is from Thessaloniki, so for the remaining days, every time I passed him, he would say, "Good morning, Thessaloniki," and I would say, "Good morning, Rodos." On the last day he saw me coming from the other side of the road and yelled, "Still here, Thessaloniki," and this time I took this shot before answering, "Goodbye, Rodos" (it was my last night over there).
