Saying that it has been quite a hectic week is an understatement. I was swamped moving out of my house, getting my wine shipment all straightened out, checking out, trying (unsuccessfully) to sell my car, and tons of other random tasks that needed attention prior to my departure. I will try and post as much as I can this week during my trip to Germany to get some medical business taken care of.
So, before I start getting ready to see some meteorites, tonight being one of the peak viewing nights this year for the Perseid Meteor Shower, I wanted to post a couple of photos and pose a question. Without having been there yourselves, seeing the top photo of the crowds in Oia, Greece, would you say it is worth it? Some of these people had been waiting over 3 hours for their “spot”, traveling from all over the world to see this sunset. Maybe that was the reason for all the angry name calling, pushes and shoves, and general bitterness that was thrown my way as I slowly made my way around trying to get some decent (unobstructed) photos. So, for a mediocre-at-best sunset over this storied little town, would you sit and wait with all these chatty tourists for hours?
If you missed it, I posted a photo from our second evening’s sunset here, which was ten times more enjoyable.
