And Boom Goes The Dynamite.

The sad part is that the welder and policeman were injured. I hope they are not hurt too seriously injured and both make full recoveries.

Take care,
Mike

So, two people were left ashore and arrangements will be made for them to meet up with the ship in France. Wonder how this will be done if their passports are onboard. It's amazing only two people were left to board.

Aren't flighs within the European Union treated as domestic now?

In any case, there are no border checkpoints for travel by land....
