Postcards from London

Walking around London is just lovely. It was blustery and cold along the river, but I love the fact most of the museums are free here and despite the fact that it is an enormous, sprawling city, it's a great place to walk around. I feel like it's more New York than Paris in some respects, especially the really decent ethnic foods you can get on the cheap.


You can just spend all day hopping from one museum to the next, if only to get the sensation back in your be-gloved fingertips.

I have been to London a few times in the past, and even from ten years ago, the place seems changed. They seem to be embracing the new much more readily than most.

I walked on back to the fantastic Borough Market. With a pastie in hand to keep the mitts warms, I browsed the various cheese and vegetable stands.

France has me so spoiled on markets. It's nice to see other cities stepping up their game.


The days here in winter are short. Like, over before your coffee is cold it seems.

But, oh, there's a real chinatown too? In love, I am.


That settles it.
