Where in the world am I? (22)

The official weather descriptor here today is once again 'smoke'. The city is choked in a grey-brown fug, visibility only a few hundred yards.

And yet, and yet.... it is ominously silent.

The blighters are out of ammunition! The firecracker frenzy of the past week or so has evidently exhausted everyone's stocks; the revellers are taking a day or two to regroup and resupply.

But the 24/7 bang-bang, rat-tat-tat-tat-tat will resume soon, I'm quite sure. Oh yes, things are going to get very noisy around here....

But still and all, despite everything, despite the crappy air and the absurd noise pollution.... it's good to be back.

Welcome back. I ceremoniously return the blogs to their owner.

(incidentally, the starbursts continue outside my window - sudden bursts of color amidst the black/gray smoke covering everything - so we'll pretend it's part of the handover ceremony. pop in a yoshida br.s CD I picked up in SD and it's a handover party.)

blog away!
