BSB 26/12/1985 Thursday
The day started and ended cloudy and I stayed at home all day. In the evening Vivi, Ana and I went to 406 and met Cristina and Ivone, we talked and laughed until 9:30, then I went home to watch the year’s retrospective. There were about 500 strikes in Brazil. A volcano erupted in Bolivia (or was it Colombia?) and buried most of a city in mud, killing 4/5 of the population, 20000 people died. They aren’t going to rebuild it, it’s now a memorial for the dead. Many airplane accidents killed 1500 people this year. Lots of kidnappings, terrorist attempts, people dying in football matches in England (150 dead). Awful Reagan supporting the ‘Star Wars’ project, inflation, AIDS. This was 1985. One less year until the year 2000.
