Photo of German Bakery

I found out earlier today that on the evening of February 13 of this year, a bomb went off in my beloved German Bakery in Koregaon Park, Pune, India. A quick google search found reports of 17 people dead, and more than 50 people injured. The place was a home away from home for visiting foreigners, and a popular meeting place. I've spent a lot of time in there, drinking chai and conversing with friends and strangers alike.

My head reels, and my heart hurts, at this news.

(The photo is from my last visit to Pune, in December of 2005.)
