Volcanic Ash Cloud.

We went to a talk last week on the subject of Santorin's earthquake. It was very interesting and we where told about all the volcanic ash and pumice that was spewed out into the atmosphere, and here we are now with a cloud of volcanic ash crippling Europe.

We have my niece and partner here on holiday and they where supposed to fly back home on Friday 16th April. They both should have started work again today after the Easter holidays. No such luck!

So there are a lot of holiday makers stranded here. Now they are talking about shipping them home as the airports remain closed.

This is a terrible start to the holiday season here as last year was bad also. We need the tourists for our jobs to be safe. No tourists, no jobs, no money.


never mind we are still having a good time going out eating drinking and been merry.
