Welcome to the online diary of the “London Ziegs,” as they journal their experiences relocating from the balmy climes of sunny Orlando, Florida to the more chaotically cosmopolitan environment of London, UK!

Betjeman's Revenge

Well, perhaps the good poet had the last laugh after all, as yesterday explosions rocked the Slough trading estate he so despised:

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman Nicole Targett said: "It was quite an explosion. Metal panels were blown out across the road into the car park opposite and the force smashed windows of other premises nearby."

"The sound of the explosion was heard for miles around.

Puneet Jindle, who works near the estate, said: "I'm located in Windsor, a few miles away, but we still heard the bang and saw a plume of smoke coming from Slough."
