Today I realized that 3 of my favorite vacation spots had some terrible thing happen to them in last year or so.
New Orleans, which I visited in December 2001, had Hurricane Katrina.
Hawaii, which I visited in June 2003, had the earthquake yesterday.
London, which I visited in May 2005, had the subway attacks in July 2005.
Probably just a consequence of being well-traveled, yes? Still, it makes me sad that some of those places that existed once will now only leave on in memories.
