    perhaps they are delivering?

    their economy now is based on tourism and wine
    looks like a cool place to visit, but for the cruise ships that stop there

    I doubt there would be much left from that explosion! From my link,

    "Thera's eruption was four or five times more powerful than Krakatoa, geologists believe, exploding with the energy of several hundred atomic bombs in a fraction of a second.''

    Rich volcanic soils provided for a thriving agricultural industry centred on wine and tomatoes.
