There’s nothing like it. I have felt earthquakes, lived through a mild volcanic eruption, hurricanes and other natural phenomena, but, until you have felt the rush of air, until your windows have momentarily looked as they were bending, the pressure rattles your core and your building shakes, do you know what it’s like to feel a bomb blast.
At 4.45pm this Friday afternoon an explosive device was thrown at the police station in Lourdes Park two blocks west of my apartment.
Glass littered the streets, every window from the buildings nearby is shattered. Two people are injured according to news reports, a civilian and a policeman.
There will be all sorts of speculations. A couple of years ago the nearby Caracol radio building was hit by a bomb left in a vehicle.
