oy.

so... things the day after here are more or less like every other day. but people seem to be turning from being scared to hunting down the idiots who are responsible for the bombings yesterday. and doing so much more fiercely and quickly than what happened in the states several years ago.

it was kind of eerie today watching the new shots of the empty roads and streets of london... they told people to keep out of the city and more or less, thats what they are doing. i think most people took a long weekend and headed for the countryside until things calm down a bit.

meanwhile the government is VERY frightened that there is going to be a backlash against the muslims (of which there are many) living in england.

i dont know if its because this is all post madrid, 911 business but everyone ive encountered here and the general mood is calm. no sky is falling panic or 24 hour news coverage for the next three weeks like we all saw before.

dont know what else to say really... saying "we're all british" three days after i went out of my way to demonstrate that we're not all british would be a bit hypocritical...

but i feel ya england. aint nobody.

Ironically london is probably the safest place to be right now - the general attitude here is that they've done what we've all been waiting for now.
