Volcanoes and flying ...

My brother was due to arrive for a short visit on Tuesday evening. He didn't, and there was little indication of why until yesterday morning when I discovered an email, sent from an airprot waiting area, to say that they were delayed by a day because of a volcano in Eritrea ...

Funny thing, when the volcanoes in Iceland blew their 'stacks' and European and US airspace was affected, it was headline news with updates on the hour.

The volcano in Eritrea has been going off boom for over a week and so is another in Chile and apparently one in New Zealand as well with several more rumbling away. Any reportage of them or the CO2 they're blasting into the atmosphere? No, I thought not. Eveidently if it isn't somewhere some member of our political classes can make election points in - it just isn't happening ...
