European presidents don't reach their countries anymore and govern their countries by remote control . My wife got stuck in Iran because of the Iceland volcano break out . Passengers get stuck in Europe airport transit halls w/o a visa so they have to stay where they are. Others change plane by bus or train and take a 3000 too 5000 kilometers journey.

I don't remember anything like that. Europe ends up in traffic chaos.



I'll pick up my bicycle this weekend and enjoy nature.

Perhaps you hadn't heard that Iceland had a banking system meltdown in which they ended up owing billions or trillions of euros (I don't remember which) to Britain and the Netherlands? Anyway they have been stalling on paying that money (because they don't have anything like that much money) so Britain sent a short note saying "SEND CASH NOW". Or actually they meant to say that but they left out one letter and ended up saying "SEND ASH NOW". Well, that's something Iceland can do, and you see the result.

Damn, I haven't thought that way. If Iceland really can SEND ASH like now then all my respect to these old Vikings

I haven't noticed any chaos, but then, I haven't been to any airport or train station. I'm enjoying not seeing and hearing any jets, though.

Something like this, were the airspace in almost whole Western Europe is closed, is a unique event as far as I can remember.

Pictures here of the volcano, including a satellite image in which you can see the enormous cloud drifting from Iceland to the UK.
