I arrived in London yesterday morning, and spent a couple hours getting into Paddington via the Heathrow Express, transferring to Victoria, and finding a Luggage Lost service to store my carry-on for a few hours (it’s near Platform 7 and cost eight quid for 24 hours).
I had decided to visit a particular museum this afternoon, but felt so tired from the flight and lack of sleep, I was rather fatigued and not thinking sharply. After a Tube ride, I realized that the only thing I’d eaten in over 24 hours, other than a handful of trail mix, was the crab cakes in Houston. So I popped into a pub for a bite to eat.
They also had free wi-if so I pulled out my shiny new MacBook Air and spent an hour eating and resting. I felt much better after getting some food into me, but by that time I needed to get back to Victoria and meet up with my friend Pat. She is working temporarily in Sutton, a suburb south of London, and her employer helped her rent a house in Epsom. It’s in a lovely neighborhood, and a nice place. Pictures later!
