Tourists battle jelly-fish in Spain
« on: August 10, 2006, 04:53:16 PM »

Aug. 9 - Thousands of stinging jellyfish invade beaches along Spain's Mediterranean coast.

The waters of the Costa del Sol, Costa Blanca, Costa Brava and the Balearic Islands have been infested by unprecedented numbers of jellyfish.

Many tourists faced the sight of red flags when they hit the beach, a precaution normally used in storms.

The jellyfish have been attracted by unusually warm Mediterranean waters, the result of this year's hot weather.

A British-Dutch study recently said Mediterranean beaches could be too hot for tourism by the 2080s, with people preferring to bake on the sands of Ireland and Scandinavia.

Michelle Carlile-Alkhouri reports.

SOUNDBITE: Tourist saying, (Spanish):
"I like swimming so I go in and when I see one I take a quick dip and run back because I've been stung before."

Check out the video!..............Aap bhi kya yaad rakkhoge!

If it ever gets that hot that Scandinavian beaches let people "bake", then people wont need to go to such places. Most countries ( except really landlocked places) would have sufficient beach front from all the freaking icebergs melting.
