Albany- An Albany woman just returned home after a trip to London that was marred by last week's terrorist attacks. Van Hawkins was on day two of her six day London and Paris tour when the bombs exploded.

Her tour group was at Buckingham Palace when it happened. They were originally told there had been a power surge in the Metro, but they soon found out that wasn't true. Her hotel was just across the street from one of the bombing sites.

"Our hotel then became a triage. A lot of the wounded and the people that were in the Metro were brought over to our hotel in the lobby and they secured that area as a triage," said Van Hawkins, Albany.

Hawkins was surprised at the organized response by the British. Later that evening, buses were running again and by the next day many people were back to their daily business.
