Madrid 11/03/2004

While thinking about the people killed, and the wounded ones in this last cowardly bombing attak - one single question comes to mind.

ETA or not, this Friday evening Rome was, oddly, almost deserted.
From Pantheon, through Piazza Navona, to St. Peter we walked with a strange, weird feeling: something was strange, after a while we realized.
No people in the streets, no noise, not much traffic, police cars parked in the corners or along the main roads.
People are scared.
