Just a quick note to let everyone know I’m still living… We were very busy yesterday, so I didn’t really have a chance to sit down at the computer. I have been adding small updates to the travel blog, but this isn’t a travel blog, so there’s been less time for writing here. I DO have some new topics, though, and pretty soon I’ll be back in full swing.
I do want to mention that I’ve noticed all of the people coming out of the woodwork about the doomed submersible Titan. I know the people who perished were very wealthy and people think of them as “spoiled” and privileged. I can see their points about that, BUT… I still think the way they died was absolutely horrifying. And from what I’ve read so far, I think Stockton Rush had blood on his hands. He seemed very motivated by greed, ambition, and the desire to make a name for himself. Because of that, four other people died with him in his vastly overpriced contraption, although granted, three of those people should have known better. I feel especially sad for the 19 year old, Suleman, who didn’t even want to go on the voyage in the first place. His life was snuffed out before it even began.
Anyway, we’re about to check out Visby, on Gotland Island in Sweden. I will sign off now… Maybe I’ll be back later. Maybe not.
