414 - Postcard from Iceland (Thanks Óskar )

The Eruption beneath the Eyjafjallajökull  glacier in the south of
Iceland began  April 14th, 2010.
Magma coming into contact with the ice caused the chilled lava to form
glass particles that were ejected into the upper atmosphere and were
considered to be hazardous to air travel. The ash plume reached heights that halted
jet travel for many days. Meltwater from the eruption also caused
flooding and washed away parts of the main road.
Previous eruptions in Eyjafjallajökull have occurred in 920, 1612, and from 1821-1823.

Granada - Patio de Los Leones
The Court of the Lions (Spanish: Patio de los Leones - Arabic: بهو السباع‎) is the main

It was commissioned by the Nasrid sultan Muhammed V of the Emirate of Granada in Al-Andalus. Its construction started in the second period of his reign, between 1362 and 1391 AD. The site is now
part of the UNESCO World Heritage List and minted in Spain's 2011 limited edition of 2 € Commemorative Coins.
