A large crater to dump my thoughts

London calling

It’s great to be back in London. Some things here may have changed, but I still feel at home. The 12 pounds I put on my Oyster card a year ago was still valid. The weather is crappy as always. I don’t think I will ever get used to being overtaken by elderly women when I am on the sidewalk.

The main thing that has changed seems to be the introduction of the congestion charge, and with that, the introduction of bicycles. They are everywhere, though it’s not anywhere near Dutch standards yet. A bunch of us rented some “Boris” bikes and cycled around for a bit.

It ought to be a good week.. It even looks like we are even going to be enjoying a genuine old-fashioned British performance of Shakespeare.
