I'm listening to the Today Programme on BBC Radio 4. I only heard about the attacks yesterday afternoon and got to an internet connection to listen to the radio. It is just so terrible. One of our friends in London was about to get on the bus to work but decided to walk because it was so full. Five-hundred yards down the road it exploded. It's hard to know what to do with that kind of a story. Whether you cry, or pray, or disbelieve. Or remain silent.
I leave Florence today for Bologna. I suspect my posts will be more intermittent as internet access will be a little more difficult. I'm hoping to catch up with some old acquaintances and friends. I'll keep you all updated as best I can.
