London – again.

I’m postponing my review of The Secret Marriage Pact until tomorrow.

It’s a little hard to pick and choose what tragedy to be sad about these days (I will point out that there’s been a severe escalation in fighting in Ukraine in the past couple of weeks – it’s not on the news).

However, I’m going to have to do a “Poor London” post #3 for the year, because of the fire yesterday.

I spent more than half of the time I lived in London renting not too far from where this disaster happened. You can see my street in the Notting Hill area (the curvy streets on the right) in the picture.

The nature of this event is shocking, as is the obvious corruption that helped to cause it.

At least 200 firefighters and 40 engines on the scene of a huge fire at Grenfell Tower in Latimer Road, near Notting Hill, in West London. 14th June 2017.

  1. It was terrible watching the video here in the states. I have never seen a building burn that quickly and intensely. There truly are no words for all the lives that were lost and the horrible ways they died. 😢

    1. It was shocking how fast it moved. I saw some of it live on TV, and it was one of the scariest things I’ve seen. There are dozens of people missing, and the police just announced it might be weeks before they figure out who died. 😦
