just five blocks from our house!
Over 1000 residents needed to be evacuated from the surrounding neighbourhood. All trains to and from the station were obviously cancelled and rerouted. The bomb squad came in and deactivated the yam and called Buddy over for his photo op.
How on Earth did this bomb hide out for almost 70 years? Did they just build the train station on top of it? Maybe if my German was better, I would find the answers in the local newspaper. But since I'm still at the "Hi, how are you?" stage, I'm just going to let my imagination run wild.
p.s. Were you more impressed when you thought it was a sweet potato? I just spent too much time looking through images of giant sweet potatoes, and man, they're ugly.
