So you are probably wondering how suspenseful vacations can be? For some a lot. I've had a few over the years that had my heart pounding. One was years ago in London during the rioting of the poll tax. My friend and I came up out of the Tube into the middle of a large gathering of people protesting the tax. Needless to say, we got out of there quickly. Police were everywhere and at that time the protest was still peaceful. We learned later that they soon because violent. When we were going to the airport the next morning, we saw the remains of what happened--cars burned, turned over, litter everywhere, damage to property. I thank the Lord for our timing. If we had been a half an hour later, we could have been really in trouble. The above picture is what the crowd looked like in the streets in 1990. The one below is what happened later when I was safely away.
What adventures have you had on a vacation that got your heart pounding?
