Back from my holidays. And my country is in flames.

This was not a good vacation for me. I´m glad that I was a company for my 94 year old aunt. But most of the time we were watching a very old TV set in horror as fires grew in my country. This is much worse that any of the big earthquakes that I have witnessed, except for the 1960 earthquake which is the biggiest ever recorded. When there are big earthquakes, we are prepared. And mostly very old houses fall. But jobs remain so that we can build again what fell down. In these fires, big forests are burning and our timber industry is no more. With that, many people will lose their way of living. Animals have been burned too and wild life is in danger. I can only say thanks for the help of many countries. We are still fighting the biggest fire ever that our country has had.

We have had the greatest forest fires ever recorded here. And it is not under control yet. We have rented the biggest aircrafts designed to control fires and we have also had international help. Still, the fire goes on destroying everything.
