Also interesting : the comments of the people, that come at the end of the articles.
And I'm sure that few of those people have seen the core of the area destroyed last year. You can drive along the new highway for more than 30 miles, through a deserted area, and see nothing but endless burnt eucalyptus ... images I've never seen anywhere in the media.

I drove through Yellowstone a year after the big burn and did not see as much devastation as you are describing.

Is this a repeat of last year ?

Had yesterday been lived moments of panic in the auto-road of the North when some conductors? without any present authority at the first moment? they had risked to invert the march to escape to the flames that galgaram the set of wheels zone.

I was following this until they got to that galgaram business.

Btw, during the peninsular campaign the Brits burned half of Portugal to keep Napoleon far away from Lisbon. The Alentejo is magnificent but the definition of a tinderbox.
