It's not entirely morbid, though. The day has been more a celebration of the rebirth of the city. It's also given me a chance to see a lot of photos of collapsed houses, which really helps me sleep at night.
One other thing on le menu:
1) I'm on the Google shuttle bus, and I just saw a guy in the next freeway lane in a pickup by himself playing a harmonica. It made me smile, as I do that when I drive. I can't sing or make music when I'm on the bus.
As a matter of fact I can say without a doubt that everyone you know will be in town.
Well, maybe just me.
