One thing I like the most in coastal cities is marina, a place for the wealthiest citizens to live, run their business, spend money. It’s just a part of the city where everything is attractive: boats and yachts, system of quays floating on calm water, small lighthouse pointing the way to dock Your boat, the best and the most expensive cafes and restaurants offering fresh fish and seafood and of course magnificent views, and probably the most wanted apartments.
In Patra’s marina, specially on weekends, You can see expensive sport cars parked outside of full cafes, where prices are double, yet You have to be lucky to find a table. Women are wearing expensive, designed clothes. It’s just a place of luxury and it seems the crisis will never get in here :-P
