The wandering traveller returns.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the infamous Leo Hayes has now returned from his 3 months travels. Thailand, Vietnam and Laos have had the shock of a lifetime by allowing Leo to travel around them. He’s taken thousands of photos; pages and pages of notes and wow does he have some great stories to go with it all.
Leo is now gathering his thoughts from this trip and we are happy to announce that he will be getting involved with YGTV. For anyone who knows Leo, his true skills lie in his creativity and slight madness that goes with it.
As a photographer first and foremost, he is now putting his time and skills towards film and we can expect some wonderful things from him in the coming months.
In the mean time back to YGTV, we had our first exclusive interview with the Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo. If you haven’t checked it out yet then we recommend you do, follow this link.
We will also be releasing our new Gourmet Host programme with the first in the series being the Yellow House. Keep an eye out for it…
What a Morning!
This morning on my way into the office nice and early, expecting “another day in the life of” style day I stopped off for coffee. After about 10 minutes I could hear an annoying alarm sound, and as always, looking for “the scoop” on a breaking news story I popped outside to see what it was. To my surprise I found the restaurant next door to my usual coffee spot alight with a fire on the bar top.
After calling the City Fire Service, myself and 2 other local bystanders decided to try to do something about it and managed to force our way in to the premises and put out the fire.
The Fire Service arrived and checked the premises and our botch job attempt to put out the fire, using a large floor carpet and a small fire extinguisher. I don’t think they were massively impressed with our efforts, but the important part was that the place didn’t burn down all together.
The restaurant’s staff and owners have been airing the place out and cleaning up after the accident, the cause of which is still unknown. The restaurant employees, owners along with volunteers have been cleaning all together and the place will be open again in time for lunch.
Thank God for the bystanders, who didn’t think twice, decided to act and have the moral conscience to help out in a situation like this. To quote someone on our facebook page: “And that speaks volumes for Gib, in the UK they wldve brought out the marshmallows and stood bk and watched.” Seb Wornall.
It’s a real point to be made and it is true. Our community spirit is still alive and kicking, despite party politics and ethnic groups. In a time of need, Gibraltar has an amazing community and really pulls through when it counts.
