Another shot of the first sunset51 viewsSantorini is a volcanic island shaped like a crescent moon with its horns pointed west. The crescent island is what remains of a volcanic cone that blew itself apart in a series of explosive eruptions, forming the steep slopes of the interior of the crescent. One of these eruptions, c. 1600 BC, may be the source of the legend of Atlantis. In the center of the crescent is a small barren island formed by lava flows rising from the still active volcano, though little evidence of that activity can be seen today except for some smoking craters you can hike to on the center island. mudmine

Changsha train station56 viewsGood luck getting tickets to Shanghai! This is the scene at the Changsha train station ticket hall, around 7 am a few weeks before the Chinese new year. You can only buy tickets 4 days in advance, and by the time we got to the ticket window, every ticket on every train to Shanghai for the following four days had already been sold.mudmine
