Madeira is recovering Fast!

Hundreds of Men and machines, are working round the clock to get things, as far as they can, back to normal.

People will take a lot longer time, to clear their minds and let go of the memories of this tragedy.

However, there are many good signs, much like the Babel tower, people today are no longer the strangers of yesterday, for how long I do not know, but it is certainly great to see them all working with each other, talking with each other, eating with each other.

Many that lost their Houses, are beeing relocated, in some cases to social habitation sites, in the attempt to resume "normal" life as soon as possible. Lets get our hopes high for them!

In the first of february 2010, 19 days before the rains hit Madeira, another storm like that hit Canary Islands, mainly in Tenerife making huge damages, but nobody talked about it..

See for yourselves.
