I am following the UK news today which is telling me that Gatwick Airport is shut due to drone action. It started last night and now, at four o'clock in the afternoon it is still shut. The chaos is going to go on into the night. What, you might say, has this to do with the photo of Aberdeen Harbour take on 19th December 2010? Well, by then I should have been back in Spain but due to the snow could not get to Gatwick until 20th where I was marooned with thousands of others. In the middle of the night I got a train to Portsmouth where I found a hotel and eventually got home on Christmas Eve by means of the Plymouth the Santander ferry.
