Where were you on 9/11?
Just realised what day it is. I was in a restaurant in Assisi. Was on a big group holiday with friends, including a couple of New Yorkers - we were staying in a villa in the middle of nowhere and had specifically chosen one with no television and had to get details over the phone from people in the UK. One of the NYers ended up leaving and staying in a hotel in town so he could watch CNN for the next three weeks that he was stuck in Italy.
My brother was in New York on the day, but didn't deign to phone anybody to say he was alright for about a week.
