After the recent blitz of looting and fiery rampaging, London is quickly returning to its civilized self, says Stephanie Kallab, Europe security analyst at iJet Intelligent Risk Systems. Despite the return of order, she says visitors can expect to see ramped-up security forces, especially at night. She said it's safe to travel to England but reminds tourists to follow the golden rules of travel. "If you see hooded people running," she says, "you need to run in the other direction." -- The Washington Post
