Well it is Thursday afternoon and this morning I woke to the sound of sirens and more sirens. I had no idea what was going on until Brett came into the room and said that the Tube system was not running for some reason.
We headed into the TV room and found ourselves watching blown up buses, panic in the tube stations and news headlines saying "London hit by Terrorists". This morning at about 9:15 a bomb was detonated on one of the underground tubes causing people to revert to the buses for transport. However, minutes later a bus was bombed also and now the city is in panic mode. Im not totally sure what the story is, but at this stage it has been reported that 6 explosions have occured on trains and a further few on buses...what a coincedence that it happened the day after London was awarded the 2012 olympics!!
Anyway, this week has been frustrating to say the least with Brett and I still having no luck with jobs!
However, we had a good night on Monday when we met up with the South African girls again. We went to Hyde Park and had a few drinks before heading down the road to a pub with them. Because of the fact that pubs close here at 11, we then headed back to Hyde Park to continue drinking...it was bloody cold but it was all good. Brett and I ended up getting back to the hostel at 4:30am after having to catch the damn bus home.
Well anyway, not sure what we will be doing this afternoon. Probably putting up with the sound of sirens and news headlines scattered acroos the TV.
What a crap time for this to happen though cos now Brett and I are stuck in the same area cos all the public transport is down :-(
