13 1/2 hours without kaboom!
So far we haven't heard any bombs for 13 hours. Yesterday was quite tense as they blasted the hell out of Dahiyeh, the southern suburbs. I went to a city park where 1700 IDPs were living today and the cars were packed up and everyone was heading home. They are much braver and optimistic than I am. Nasrallah just gave a speech on the telly where he declared victory for Hezbollah. According to our brave CNN correspondent who was standing about 5 miles away in his flak jacket, the nightsky was filled with the sound of automatic weapons fired in triumph. I am flinching everytime I hear a door slam or a loud sound. Waiting waiting waiting to see if the ceasefire holds.
