I ♥ night driving...

I'm driving up to the Troodos mountains to find a quiet spot to watch the Persied (meaning Persian women in Greek?)meteor shower. They look like shooting stars, but they're actually comet particles that cause streaks across the sky from the comet Swift-Tuttle. This little comet has been visiting Cyprus for generations, always around the same time every year. It's part of folklore up in the mountains here.
