Queenstown, Tasmania

A fire had just gone through this plateau, which is just west of Queenstown.

Karl,
the regrowth will happen and quickly. I was surprised to see this since this south western part of Tasmania gets a lot of rainfall (annual mean rainfall is around 1500mm).

Real devastation -- tho, as you say, it will regenerate fast. Ironically (for me) some of the landscape around here in portugal looks very similar -- eucalypts have been extensively planted as cash crops, along with pine, and the hot summer last year meant that much of it went up in flames. Burnt survivors fringe the hilltops around Figueiro dos Vinhos, although recent spring rains have see the hillsides green up fast.

Sometimes, walking in the forest around the house, I think I'm back in Australia except for the eerie quietness compared to Au bush.

Have you left Melbourne, Australia? " Figueiro dos Vinhos,looks to be in the middle of Portugal. Are you living in the village--Casal de São Simão? Why the eerie quietness?

Yes, I've left for good! You have no idea how wonderful it is not to have to care about au politics ;-P!! São Simão is close by and is a really lovely xisto village in a dramatic setting overlooking a beautiful river. We are living alone in the forest near Figueira, a tiny traditional farming village. The forest is eerily quiet because of the lack of noisy australian wild-life -- nothing lives in the eucalyptus forests here as little has had a chance to adapt to them. In contrast, around our house, where there is some remnant original forest,is teeming with life and bird song.

okay. What did you do about EU citizenship? The eucalyptus forests are Tasmanian blue gums? That remnant, original forest would be very precious.
