Alvar’s point of view

In Hong-kong, I liked the Peak very much. I enjoyed our visit of Laama Island too.

Don’t take the subway in Tokyo, because it is far too crowded.

You must see the Great Barrier Reef ! But beware of the jellyfish.

Come and join me in New Zealand. It is beautiful, fun and comfortable.

Love, Alvar.

Alvar’s Research on The Great Fire of Meireiki

The great fire of the imperial city of Edo (the former name of the Japanese capital Tokyo) destroyed 60% of the population. The fire started March 2, 1657 and killed 100,000 lives. The fire spread quickly due to very strong winds (like a hurricane) and that houses were built of paper and wood and where built very close to one another.
