Bomb alert in Besiktas 16/08/06 @ 18:45

Last night while getting home from work, our shuttle was blocked off in Akaretler and couldn’t drive down to the sea shore due to a police barricade formed because of a bomb threat. The threat was in the form of an abandoned bag that people stared at for a while before some properly equipped police officers came and handled the package with care. Once everyone understood that the threat wasn’t that threatening after all, the barricade was removed and the cars started passing through. The funniest detail was the children that didn’t seem to care that a bomb might explode at any time and that were running through the barricades, playing and watching the police carefully. I guess at that age everything has a sense of wonder.

    Glad that it wasn’t a bomb.
    And yes, for children life is to be astonished and puzzled…
