Thought for the day….” Sometimes you have to take a leap at life and build your wings on the way down”. ” When in doubt, do without”
” There is no use in running fast when you are on the wrong road”.
In my inbox today was an email from an airline (a good one too) advertising some special offers on their new Dreamliner aircraft. Given that the very same aircraft is in the international news again today (after another fire), it was perhaps unfortunate timing to send out these emails !!. Confidence in the safety of that aircraft must be at an all time low now, and I am in no hurry to fly onboard it. And a Thomson Dreamliner flying from the UK to the USA has also diverted and returned to the UK as well. Bring back the 747 I say, until Boeing can sort the Dreamliner out and get rid of all the problems.
Off to the Caribbean for the photo today and to the island of Curacao. Little Knep beach is the place in the photo and another busy day by the look of it. Water and air temperature were near perfect here. Curacao is now an independent country, after being part of the Netherlands Antilles up to 2010, and is home to around 162 000 people. Tourism, financial services, oil and international trade are the main industries here. Venezuela is only about 60km away from Curacao.
