London, the day after...

I have a 12 hour layover in the Heathrow airport so I thought I would add a post to help keep myself awake. It's hard to judge what might be going on in the city, but it is remarkably subdued here. I saw posters about supporting the bid for the Olympics, but no signs of celebration. BBC television has focused much of the day on continuing reports from the terrorist attacks. And of course, the London Times filled most of the paper with stories related to the bombings. Even the sports stories were focused on the impact of the attack.

The airport is open with what seems like only slightly increased security levels, though it is hard to tell what security measures I didn't see. It was a little scary to see the police carrying machine guns.
