More than two and a half years ago the ‘electricarchaeologist‘ Shawn Graham picked up an idea by Geologists, puzzling each other with screenshots from Google Earth asking “Where on Google Earth”. He adequately changed the question to “When on Google Earth” and it crawls the archaeologists web since.
I came across the game several times but somehow lost track the last months. But then I saw the image of WOGE 130 and it immediately reminded me on the wonderful Nile cataracts I had the pleasure to work at about ten years ago.
Now, that Uronarti is identified I have the pleasure to present WOGE 131:
Enigmatic, isn’t it? And, yes, it is in a way Dionysian…
