Almost there...

Tuesday, March 25, 2003

Well, I'm in London and it's great. The weather couldn't be better. It's even surprising the locals with how beautiful it's been for the last week or so. Generally it's about 65-70 degrees and sunny all day. This brought all the Londoners out in force on Sunday for some impromptu football games in Kensington Park on Sunday.

Meanwhile we've spent time in the Tower of London, took a walking tour, bummed around Leicster Square and Picadilly Square, bumped into my Roman Art and Archaeology professor in the British Museum as he was regaling a group of folks on tour with him about the Portland Vase, had yummy yummy bangers and mash at a pub called The Plough, got sucked into a game store far too close to closing time, and joined a casual Morris class for a bit of longsword and Beansetting. I walked into the Morris class late, but they immediately handed me a sword and threw me in. The instructor, John Russell, was an enthusaistic and forgiving instructor.

We're still a little overwhelmed by all the smoking, but heck, with such cool things as the tube and the Cecil Sharp House, I'd still be willing to move here tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'll keep this short since it's by the minute. Ta for now!
