here i come
London, October 2011
I'm headed to Europe for a work assignment at the end of the month, and happily, the assignment ends in London, which means I can extend my stay by a few nights to spend some time in one of my favourite cities. I haven't planned anything except to revisit old favourites and check out what's new, and it's just nice to have a couple of days on my own, enjoying a change of scenery.
It's a bit of a relief style-wise, too. Travelling to a colder place means I can tweak how I dress a bit and layer a little more, and wear things like jackets and coats and scarves. No doubt you guys living in the northern hemisphere are thoroughly fed up with cold weather by now, but to tropical folk like me living in 30-degrees celsius weather year-round, a coat seems positively exotic and exciting.
