  2. We didn’t go with the first rush of islanders who followed their old instincts of beachcombers because we are outlanders over there;

  4. We had to leave the island because the apartment had to be cleared for the next guests and the grandchildren had to be delivered to their father in Amsterdam;
  5. We were asked to stay away the next days because a storm is coming and the beaches are almost cleaned up;
  6. There are so many volunteers now we are useless;
  7. We will no doubt do back if a next tsunami of rubble floods the beaches and we will be of use over there.
