Not A Bad Problem To Have I Guess

in outofthinair •  2 months ago  (edited)

I’m going through the pictures I’ve taken over the past few days trying to decide on a cover image and I’m writing this opening sentence instead. I still haven’t decided on one—not a bad problem to have I guess.

The stunning @puravidaville and I landed in Thessaloniki, Greece, on Monday. We’ll be here until the 4th of December and then we’re off to Rome, Italy—I can’t wait to see how they decorate Rome for Christmas. Them Catholic’s better light that place up! 😉

We spent the last couple of days scoping out our surroundings. There’s a lot of street art to be seen around here, gorgeous sunsets, too, and I’m not just saying that because we’ve been in the UK the past four months where sunshine is nonexistent. We caught a skateboarder being filmed as she performed a couple of kick-flips—that was cool! We got caught in the rain, too, “ah shucks,” we were forced to find cover and enjoy a cup of coffee together until it passed.

What else? Oh, some ruins, too, we found some fenced off ruins in the middle of town and the square shaped earth—yes, square, not flat or round but square, you’ll see. I almost forgot about the drum circle! Hundreds, literally hundreds of people gathered around drummers that just kept gathering and gathering, so many drummers kept rolling in one after the other—I’ve never seen anything like it. And it all took place on the coast at sunset—incredible. I took a picture of the circle but it didn’t stand a chance so I filmed a little over three minutes of it for you. I’ll attach a YouTube link at the end of this article—welcome to Thessaloniki.

Guess I better decide on a cover image now—I can only hope the remainder of today’s decisions prove to be as challenging as this one. “Reeeaadyyyyyy - break!”

Now for the drum circle. There’s too many drummers in the following clip to count. As they continued rolling in, one after the other, each with a different instrument, the more harmonic they became. I don’t know if we just happened to be in the right place at the right time or if that’s just how they roll in Greece but, whatever the reason, I’m glad we got there when we did.

Thank you <— bigger than that @appreciator! Thank you for appreciating my efforts. This is an honor.

I’ve always associated graffiti with the hip hop days ... and NYC ... more specifically the Bronx . Lol

Formalities first—thank you for checking out these pics! Where you been? I’m glad you liked this one, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I thoroughly enjoyed snapping each of them. :formality over:

Whoever says hip hop and the bronx in the same sentence needs one of these with their coffee, preferably loud and in a residential neighborhood.

South Bronx

Oooooh weee!! See, I’m I Greece right now, it’s 6am, and I haven’t heard that song in a hot minute. What I’m trying to say is, thank you @anonymity5, the only thing better than this cup of coffee is this cup of coffee and some BDP—good call! 👍🏿 Great to hear from you again, been a long time.

:light bulb: We have a pretty big announcement this week in the @foodfightfriday kitchen. If you’re not too busy and can think of anything food related, we’d really appreciate you making an appearance. Thanks for dropping by, you face concealing picture taker, you. 😉 Always a pleasure when you do.
