NEW BLOG POST: Acclimating: Itea and Earthquakes http://ow.ly/pGoy5

Itea is a port town (pop. ~7,000) literally down the mountain from Delphi, the famous site of the Greek oracle. It is exactly what you would imagine a smallish town by the water in Greece to be: quaint, relaxed, relatively quiet, and to some degree, a little run down with half-finished buildings, peeling paint and weather-worn, cracked wood. Locals (and me now too) spend a lot of time outside, as much as possible while the weather holds: relaxing on balconies (or a rooftop if you are me), seated on a plastic or wooden chair on the sidewalk, lounging at outdoor cafes and restaurants, walking or biking. It is a safe place: seniors walk home at midnight; women leave their purses on ledges and hanging off chairs while dining; doors and windows often remain open and/or unlocked.

Idyllic, yes?

Amazing. I'd give just about anything to lay down and watch this.... note to self :)
Hey everyone! Just a quick reminder that the Perseid Meteor Shower is this weekend into early next week! In North America, you should be able to see up to 80 meteors per hour if you're in a clear, dark area. To see them, just look north-easrt (towards Perseus) after the moon sets and remember to bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and food or drink. To find an area with dark skies near you, I'd recommend using this light pollution map. Have fun and good luck!
