Here we go again. I find myself once more living in a place that Al Qaeda is determined to hit. The Eiffel Tower has been closed down twice in recent weeks and there have been a lot of disruptions in public transportation in response to suspect packages. And there are more police around, particularly in the metro.
But otherwise, life goes on as normal and really what else are you gonna do? Government offiicials are giving only guarded comments to the media. Actually, it seems as if there's more coverage in the U.S. press about increased concerns of a terrorist attack in European capitals than in the French papers. As for those of us on the ground? We're just following the advice that British Ministry of Information provided in the early days of World War II: keep calm and carry on.
