Ian, Did the recent Tonga earthquake cause any damage near where you were? The news report immediately brought you to my mind. Best regards. -Art
Hi Art. Thank you for making contact and for your thoughts of us in the South Pacific. There was no damage reported anywhere here that I know of. I felt two small quakes here, one that had us rocking gently at 7am for a few seconds, and the trees swaying for about a minute, and the other was felt as gentle vibration for about 15 secs, 3 hours earlier. Most people were asleep and not aware.
It is good for a geographer to be able to feel the pulse of the earth! (as long as there are no ruptures, traumas or belching!)
Warm regards from Tonga. I am going home in a month.
Many thanks Ian to show us this photo
life should not always be happy
And good Week,
Best regard, Roland
Merci beaucoup, Roland. When roads or bridges fail there is a lot of disruption, but the effect on the people is particularly heavy in developing countries.
Thanks for your appreciation.
beautifull perspective , I love this place, LIKE
Thank you, Alex. The bridge is a memorable location, for when you cross it you see this attractive lagoon, that is often coloured by the limestone geology.
I had to climb onto a water tank to get this view of it.
