BBC News - London riots

My mom is in town and I have so many wonderful stories to share of our England and Parisian adventures. However, we’ve been too preoccupied with the London Riots of 2011 to upload any photos. There have been fires and fights in my neighborhood, but as of this writing we are safe. Thank you to the Lewisham police for getting things under control (in other areas of the city the police have been reportedly absent)! Francesca came over and she and my mom and I spent the evening drinking wine, eating black bean tacos and listening to the police sirens and helicopters as the news and then the movie Titanic flickered in the background.

Sometimes I feel like Forrest Gump with the situations I find myself in.
