The mountain seen in the main photo are in the northwestern part of the island. Our flight was counterclockwise starting and ending at the airport.

In the old days in dark room work, one would use a dodging tool under an enlarger. One of the photographers recorded the event with an iPhone (second from the right).

I took a photo of "a photo myself and my imaginary twin". Of course, it was a double exposure. This is a scanned image of the ancient photo.
