Re: [St.H.Fam.Hist.] official - St Helena airport to be built
- According to the link they expect the tourism numbers to increase from
900 to 30,000.... where are all those people going to stay... currently
there is the Consulate Hotel and Wellington House and a few other
private places, nothing like the needed capacity... and they'll still
need the ship for all the cargo....food, cement, cars, white goods...
the island will need to make some major changes to their relaxed
lifestyle.... shops may need to open longer just as one example....
It'll be interesting to see....
