HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Welcome to Our World Tuesday! This meme continues in memory of the work of Klaus Peter, whose "that's My World" brought people together from around the world every Monday to share the wonders therein--big and small.Please click on our new logo for "Our World Tuesday" in the sidebar.
The year 2011 was a very turbulent, tempestuous one. It started with unbalanced weather all over the world. There was a flooded area in Queensland as large as Germany and France. For me this was all very scary as my daughter lives there. Her house was okay and dry, but she stayed with friends in a house on a hill surrounded by water. This was January. Then came the horrific tsunami in Japan, which shocked the world. Especially when it caused a meltdown in the nuclear plant of Fukushima.
There were earthquakes in New Zealand, in many countries in Asia, recently in Turkey and the Philippines. The peoples of the Arab world revolted against their rulers, most of them were dictators. Gadaffi was killed, so was Osama bin Laden.
Fortunately there was also more pleasant news, like the royal wedding of Kate and William in April.
