Seven hours after sitting glued to the TV watching CNN I had to get on a plane to go to Crete on holiday.  It is the only time I have ever been scared of flying.  I am glad I still went – it is where I met ricardo.  Our days were spent by the pool and our evenings in front of the bar’s huge widescreen TV watching CNN show those clips over and over.  We felt guilty for being on holiday and having a good time so we kept watching because it was all we could do.  That, and drink milkshakes with amaretto.  For all the horrible and stupid loss, I am still so surprised that the number of people killed was below 3,000.  It just didn’t seem possible that so many had managed to get out.  It all happened so quickly.  But the number that didn’t make it is still almost 3,000 too many.
