Most of a week in London. It was exhausting.

I saw more people per hour than I see in a month at home. Everything is loud. Overstimulating. Too many people. No stars at night. Did I mention the crowds? It's like another universe. I walked as much as possible, and took the bus as the next option, but due to logistical.. challenges.. ended up on the Tube more than I would have liked.

But it was fantastic to see TAG colleagues, Co-op colleagues, and old friends, who I haven't seen in three dimensions for well over two years.

Also to eat lots of exciting things. Ethopian and Indian food. Falafel. Seed Cafe. Temple of Seitan. Purezza. Finally a Sri Lankan feast with D. Then the night bus home.
