HI Lynn and Sharon! There are many Straydogs in europe countries as well, meaning the southern Europe countries, where the climate is warm enough for them to survive. In the Northern hemisphere they struggle in winter. I hike in the mountains in Europe and I have seen strydogs from Madeira, Portigal island through Spain, France, Italia .....to Greece .... to Turkey. You should be careful with feeding them or treat them like tame dogs, because they are not and you feeding them is an insecure foodsource for them, not beeing there tomorrow. Staydogs also bare infections and are often infected with rabies. A norwegian student recently died of rabies, because she fed straydogs in Thailand.
Errr ... Athens is in Europe.
Hi Lynn. I hear what you say. We have travelled extensively and have seen stray dogs in Athens, Thailand and more recently Bali. However, we have not see strays in Europe, Ireland, England, Isle of Man or Scotland. On a trip to Bali (in May last year) many dogs just walk across very busy roads. How they do not get hit only the dear Lord knows. At a beach in Kuta, Bali, we saw a gent feed about 12 dogs and when we chatted to him he smiled and said he loves them and they love him. Very heart-warming. We live in South Africa and if our dogs went onto the roads they would be killed because they never go out unless on a lead.Greetings to you all :)
Not wanting to dampen spirits, but I have traveled to all but 2 countries in South America and it's the same everywhere, stray dogs. They are bought as pups and discarded when they grow up. I have been to many cities where just about the first thing I do is buy dog food to feed the strays. I save my scraps when eating out. The most touching thing is, when you eat outside and many restaurants are outside, the dogs don't beg or bother you, they sit back a few feet and patiently wait for you to finish your meal and give them your leftovers. Unlike another poster, my guides informed that they were strays and did not have loving homes to return to at night. I saw a lovely man in Bolivia once, dressed in a shabby suit, with a typical South American hat being followed by numerous dogs. He would reach into his pockets and bring out a snack for them. When I realized that he was taking care of the street dogs, I called him over and gave him a good amount of money and through hand gestures, he understood that I wanted to help him feed the dogs. He hugged and kissed me. It was the most beautiful thank you I have ever received. It's not just South America, unfortunately it is pretty much everywhere outside of the US and Europe.

Elle Tea, my son and I did a visit to Bolivia and Peru in 2015, and our local guide (in Bolivia) said most of the dogs had homes and loving owners, The dogs are let out daily to roam the town, and show up at night for dinner. With 'western' traffic, I would be scared to allow our dogs out like that, but it's not an issue down there.... That being said, I was told before we left NOT to offer your hand to pet the dogs, as rabies vaccines are not that common, yet.
There are always so many dogs running around! I read there are a lot of street dogs there. I feel sorry for them!

16jan19--Sent an email to the host here ' Cappuccino Café - Cusco ' requesting the cathedral be back in the image view. Not that the cathedral is all that appealing after viewing it many times , but , the activity in front / and on the steps is enticing/alluring. IMO a much better selling view than the street just in front of hosts business.Hope this view draws customers to them. Over 1 million views now. EnJooooy EnJooooy!
Haven't checked for a while, but it's great to see the original camera shot back with the cathedral in the picture and San Blas in the background.
Battle of Angamos is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed. 8 October EnJoy EnJoy
I wonder if the cathedral has some objection to being shown on camera. I can think of no other explanation.

Please adjust the camera angle in a way we can see the Cathedral.
