Weirdest trip ever  
So... my first business trip after going back to work full time. Nice and easy - quick jaunt down to London to deal with one of our oldest customers that I'm very familiar with (a large metropolitan police force in the south of England who shall remain nameless *cough*). What could possibly go wrong?

Well, other than the people I was visiting being slightly distracted by other events, not much really. We didn't go out on Monday night (ate in the hotel) and left early yesterday since they were worried about more stuff kicking off but really I didn't see any sign of trouble other than a very increased police presence. The atmosphere was very very tense everywhere though and streets were definitely quieter than usual on Tuesday afternoon.

I had planned on Monday night to possibly pop along to North Gower Street (where they film Sherlock) to take some pictures since the hotel wasn't far from there but decided against it. Of course I was just thrilled to find out when I got back that they were actually filming there on Monday and I missed it. Oh well. Would probably just have made an idiot of myself if I'd seen anybody anyway!

*hugs you* They were filming down there yesterday and had to evacuate sharpish because rioting was only two streets away. Apparently Mark and Martin were there and was quite scary!

Glad you're safe, bb.

Yeah, I saw that on Twitter, although they said all was well today. Yikes!

Glad you managed to avoid it-- but talk about timing. :-S

Well dang! That's a shame. But I'm glad to hear the trip was uneventful - what timing.

Wow, so sorry that you missed the filming because of this. But I'm glad everyone's all right!
