Well, I did venture out this afternoon and things were pretty normal.
I saw two soldiers on the way to meet Suzette at Starbucks (which was
open along with most things (except banks, schools and gov offices)).
They were calmly standing by the side of Thapae Rd. After our time at
Starbucks we ventured to a mall and saw two more soldiers standing by
The mall was packed – I think everyone was taking advantage of a day
off from work or school. It was spitting when we left the mall, and
definitely raining by the time I dropped Suzette back off at her hotel.
The rain continued on while I returned back to here.
CNN and BBC came back on around dinner time.
I'm choosing not to say much more, but if you want to know more, this
is where I've been looking – BBC's website.
