Joseph and I took the bus down to Science World last night (or what is currently Russky Dom) and walked all along the water and into downtown and the up to see the Olympic torch. The nightly fireworks display was taking place as we were walking along the water and an area of town that is usually deserted on a Saturday night was packed with people. Everyone was stopped and staring at the sky as we weaved our way through the crowd. It felt like we were in an old science fiction story, like War of the Worlds and everyone was too stunned and stupid to get the hell out of there. I wanted to yell "RUN!" We hadn't quite made it through all the people when the firework display ended and so we were swept up by the crowd and proceeded like cattle to try to find our way to a more quiet route.
