Re: Dust cload latest maps latest 20/4 at 22:00 All UK Open


Upon reading the titles attached to many of those photos I found them to be very humbling.
So far, all we keep hearing from the main news sources are claims of how TOURISTS are
suffering.   Fact is their suffering is no where near as great as that of the Icelandic people
& their animals in the vicinity of that volcano.
When we can see a picture of a farmer going out in goggles to search for animals lost in the ash
clouds & are told that this time of year it is their lambing season, then it stands to make us
all rethink how unimportant the issues re the tourist industry are.
I for one came down to earth with a bump because its so easy to get distracted by the sort
of sympathy headlines for tourists we`ve been reading this last week.
My sympathies now lie with the Icelandic people, and anything regards the tourists or the greedy
industry can go and whistle.
Sorry if this sounds like a rant, but I do feel that main stream news medias have had their day homing
in on tourist related issues, and the poor people of Iceland (and China as well) have been forgotton.
On a more cheerful note the last 3 photos by Olivier Vandeginste are brilliant, and he has two photo
blogs :
