I was on vacation in the lovely District of Columbia metro area (i.e. the Virginia suburbs) for a few days. Had some BBQ (lamb sausages are awesome), and hit the Adams Morgan scene.
Today, however, on my way to work I heard the news. London has been bombed. Over 33 people have been killed in 4 blasts. Three trains and one double-decker bus. The bus roof was sheared off from the bomb. I can't imagine what that must have been like.
You never know what life is going to hand you.
