St. Helena to get airstrip

Snookums and I loved St. Helena–supposedly the most remote island on Earth, whose only connection to the rest of the world was the once-monthly British Mail ship, the St. Helena.

According to this article[*1] , St. Helena is getting an airstrip.

Jamestown, St. Helena

On the one hand, bully for them! On the other hand, I hope it doesn’t ruin the beautiful, simple charm that the village of Jamestown had when we visited it a couple of years ago. The Saints–residents of St. Helena–will be delighted, though. They really, really, really resented the decision of the previous British Government to cancel plans to build the airport.
