London: Final night

I wanted to do something a bit different for my final night, and I almost missed everything due to the classic London subway hassle of major delays due to “signalling falures” . But I took a different route and “flew” on the London Eye and it was fun – and a bit scary. While I [...]

London: Travel Disaster

Sunday morning, the ultimate travel disaster: Wake up late, have a nice late breakfast at a local cafe, and then spill my cappuccino on my shirt and shorts – and I only have 1 pair of shorts on this trip, being such an incredible packer, and I was gonna walk around today, and I hate [...]

London: When it rains it pours

I was gonna take today, Wednesday, off and to go the Royal Botanic Gardens but the sky was gray and then it rained a bit. Lia has said her stomach hurts on and off and said so again this morning. Jenny thought that she, herself, was getting sick. Mid-afternoon I talk to Jenny and it [...]
