Day 3: Most of today was spent at the Magic Bus office, giving me time to get some work done for the UK office, meet more wonderful Magic Bus staff, work on the blog and digest everything I saw yesterday. As I alluded to in my last post, my feelings about what I saw, both good and bad, were not tempered by a good night’s sleep.

That being said, the thoughts and feelings I describe are a genuine reaction to a what I feel is a dramatic sight, and it would be a diservice to both you and me if I tried to disguise that.
