I’m glad my bus wasn’t on fire but there were other fires that were pretty tragic this weekend.
On Saturday, the Camden Market in London caught fire, forcing 300 people out of work and doing millions of pounds of damage.
More sadly to me, Namdaemun in Seoul burned down on Sunday. This actually caused me greater sorrow, as I have never been to Camden Market but have seen Namdaemun many times. I was at the gym when the news came on the BBC, and all I could do was stop the treadmill and stare at the tv, mouth open, horrified. I feel sad for the people of Korea – that gate has protect the city from tigers and Japanese alike for centuries.
