Just back from shopping, Town is exactly the same as always; I even saw a soldier and policeman chatting and laughing. The only crowds were around newspaper sellers. Traditionally they put a copy of each of their publications on display against a wall or on the floor and people stop and read the front pages. Normally there are 4 or 5 people reading; today they were 10+. I strongly suspect that 90% of Tana had no idea anything at all happened yesterday until they heard or read about it this morning.
Despite the complete normality of the morning I am not convinced this is finished yet.
But I will go to the free concert at the Centre Culturel Albert Camus at lunchtime then to MOY for two 1-2-1s with Rajo and Hanta and then my class with the Cabinet group (on English idioms including 'daft as a brush' etc) and after that I am meeting with Pal to discuss bringing over the carloads of rugby stuff BRILLIANTLY collected by John Cornish and Sue Bastone (and hopefully Julie Wilson). If anyone else has anything now is the time to contact Maura or Dan on the home number. I would like to get it shipped out here in the New Year if possible but there is a bit of organising to do first.
