Where’s Damien?

Sorry for the delay in getting our content up today. I’ve been out of the office doing some research for an upcoming series of stories. So where was I? I’ve put a teaser video above, and the first person to correctly say where I was this morning in the comments section wins a Streetsblog t-shirt.
