Exposed for Your Own Safety

While preparing to move again — the fifth time in the last year-and-a-half — I've come across a lot of things I didn't know I had kept. Here's one of the most interesting:

I scarcely remember the door being removed, much less this letter being written or me swiping it as a keepsake from my London program back in the summer of 2003. But there you have it — the British notion of security involves opening your living quarters to prowlers, jewel thieves and axe murderers.

I'm wondering if any kids from my program know about this blog — Megan and Molly, I'm looking at you — and if so, if they can remind me how we broke the door in the first place. Also: the super's name was "Murch"? "Murch"?!

EDIT: Huh. I looked a few days back at Megan's blog and she just recently put up a post about London too.

    I think the door broke because... We were irresponsible American college students running amuck in London?

    Nah, I vaguely remember it being pretty bad when we arrived and someone saying that they should have fixed it before we arrived, etc etc. Amazingly, I don't think it was even our fault. I took a picture of the note before we left because I as well thought it rather ridiculous.

    Hope you had a lovely holiday, Drew :)
