Rachel – Day 69

16 Apr

The News: Volcanic Ash Prohibits. The volcanic eruption that occurred in Iceland yesterday (Wednesday the 14th) under a big glacier has left several homeless and evacuated. This is the volcano’s first major eruption since 1821 and it’s had lasting effects. Over 17,000 flights have been canceled in Europe and volcanic ash is inhibiting thousands in their traveling plans.

Because flights are canceled, the trains are booked, taxis are rarely vacant other forms of transportation are being exercised. One man was said to have paid a taxi cab driver $5,000 to take him to his destination because he was so desperate for transportation.

(ummmm…..conversations with mom and hubby)
