Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to wish my Japanese followers a happy Tanabata day. Tanabata, the star festival involves writing wishes on colourful pieces of paper, and then hanging them on bamboo leaves.

Today is also the anniversary of  the 7/7 bomb attacks which took place in London five years ago. I’m sure that I write on behalf of all Blackcabquotes followers and friends by wishing that such atrocities NEVER take place in our wonderful world again.

Mark, the driver

Below is a translation of the Japansese Tanabata song;

“The bamboo leaves rustle,
shaking away in the eaves.
The stars twinkle;
Gold and silver grains of sand.”

  1. Since I heard your interview on BBC podcast which then prompted me to visit your website, I have been so moved by some of the quotes I have read that I thought it fitting to leave one of my own.

    “I was born on a new day, I will die on a new day”
