Take Key West. Beautiful, scenic southernmost point. Today, tar balls washed ashore. Nashville, floods. Chile, earthquake. Puerto Rico, same. Peru, mudslides (they closed Macchu Picchu). Mexico, horrible violence. Greece, bankruptcy. Iceland, bankruptcy, then volcanic ash. Ditto on ash for Scotland and the UK - although a friend just flew back from London and had no problems coming or going. Haiti - not a typical vacation destination, but I wonder how neighboring Dominican Republic is doing.
