One of many signs that someting
special will happen.

The signs of the eclipse

Everywhere you could find posters, flags, T-Shirts, advertings and more saying something about the eclipse or using the eclipse as symbol.

For the tourism on the island it was a perfect timing: Carnival and eclipse within one week, ideal also for short-time-tourists (as I actually was with my one-week-stay).

Below you see one of the managers of the tourist-office. He explained me the plannings about the observation sites organized by the tourist-office. Best regards to Dino R. Daal from here, now 4 months after the eclipse!
