Sitting all together watching TV!!
The three day curfew that was announced was supposed to begin at ten this evening.
Instead - we awoke to a curfew world. No cars, no sounds, empty roads - a ghost town. All together, in the office, knowing that none would be able to go home tonight.
It was a bit scary at first; we hadn't had time to hoard supplies for three days, but an expedition undertaken by the drivers to the market - on foot - made us sigh with relief upon their return. Sustenance!
After that things started taking on a camping air; no Chef - who's cooking??
Jenan and I pitched in - it was lovely!
Evening came on with an unreal quality; we are all still here together, preparing, then having dinner together. Sitting in the newsroom to the early hours watching news, films, video clips. Chatting and working. playing and laughing - laughing so completely out of control that tears are flowing from our eyes!
Two more days to go.
Curfew. Quiet city. Safe city. Dead city.
Let's laugh together while we may.
