What do you think about the volcano in Iceland that’s disrupting flights to Europe?
John: I think it’s terrible, but what are you going to do about it? It’s just an unfortunate thing.
Do you know anyone who was affected by the volcano?
Rachel: I have a niece who was in Spain. She was supposed to come home [on Sunday]. I don’t know if she made it home. She was vacationing. She started out in London and then Paris, and she was working her way down to Spain. They had an earthquake down in Spain. But she’s a pretty independent, adventurous kind of person, so it might not have bothered her at all. [Laughs.]
