Rasma Says

Musings, deliberations, flashes of unaccounted for brilliance…

A lazy afternoon in Taverny, a nightmare in Oslo

We finally got on the internet on our computers, my airbook, Bia’s macbook, Kazi’s android pad, and the first thing we see is: Explosion in Oslo. Witnessing here the wildfire of the internet as gossip rages about bombs and deaths and how many explosions and the big why and what for. It is strange because before coming to Paris I had thought about how likely a target it is for a seasonal bombing, like the one in London, Madrid, Mumbai… Paris was a virgin target… but Oslo? Well we don’t know anything yet, it could have been an accident or a fluke, and hopefully the damage isn’t as widespread and vast as rumored. We are keeping an eye on things, as well as we can, since Norwegian broadcasting doesn’t allow for live feed outside the country.

And drinking our café au lait and eating our gateaux.
