Thought for the day…” They talk about the speed of light, but what is the speed of darkness?

I sometimes wonder if airlines are playing games. I have been looking for air tickets, and also looking for the cheap offers. Saw some good prices, but of course, when you try to book they are not available. Then I tried one of the online websites that collects and compares airfares, found some prices that were ok, but between looking and going to the next stage, the prices had gone up by about 60 euros. Not only that, but there were huge differences in the prices depending on what day of the week that you flew. I cannot see the logic when the airlines are using the same aircraft on the same route why the prices should be SO different. And I cannot understand why the price of the ticket depends on what time I look at the website and also which browser I am using. I am tired of these games. Clear, simple pricing would be much better. And those airlines that are now charging for CARRY-ON baggage (as well as all the other extra charges) will not see me onboard either.
Off to the Cape Verde islands for the photo today…a group of 10 main islands in the Atlantic Ocean about 575 km of the coast of Africa. They were originally a Portuguese colony, and were an important stopover on the slave trade routes. Around 500 000 people live in Cape Verde, with about a quarter of them living in the capital, Praia. About a half million tourists visit every year outnumbering the number of locals. The photo is of the harbour in Mindelo, on the island of Sao Vincente.
