    Back in the USSR…no wait, too many letters

    Thursday, January 1st, 2009

    Since I’ve been back in the US I’ve been telling the tales of what I got up to in England and was thinking “If only there was somewhere I could go to tell everyone the story at the same time”. Until that time arrives I will make do telling you here. It was cold, around -5 to 0 centigrade or 23-32 faranheit. We got snow on a couple of days but it wasn’t a windy rainy cold so it was bareable with several extra layers of clothing.

    We went to Spurs, ice skating at Tower of London (photos to come eventually) and met up with friends and family.

    Coming back to California were were a little overdressed, it’s been in the 80s here (mid 20s in c) and it feels like the start of summer.

    A few days in London

    hmm, this was supposed to have been posted a month ago but it shows how much attention I’ve been paying recently when I just found it in my drafts folder.  Well it’s all written so I thought I might as well post it albeit a little belated.

    The weather was a lot better than expected this week.  Last week when I checked it was supposed to shower all week and was supposed to be quite chilly.  We got quite lucky and have had beautiful blue skies all week, kind of like California with the heat turned down.

    National Gallery

    We’ve been out and about a bit, Oakmere Park, in to London to see the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square and Picadilly Circus.  Wandering around really but I did manage to find an England shirt from Lillywhites now that they have no significant games this summer.

    I came across some interesting people in London yesterday, there was a guy doing some kind of Irish/Scottish dancing (for Jesus & peace I believe) in Trafalgar Square but he looked like the kind of guy that would be eliminated in the first round of Pop Idol/American Idol.  He wore a mini skirt instead of a kilt.

    There was also the guy miming and dancing to the Michael Jackson songs in his head.
