A bit behind schedule…

Arrived in London on schedule, at 7am. The immigration was a mess and it took two hours to get cleared and through, then 2 hours to drive to Swepstone. And, once there, we went straight to work.

Got a lot done. Went for a ride through the English countryside in Nick’s vintage MG. Did some more work. and was sound asleep by 930pm.

It was still light out.

I had forgotten how far north we are. The sun rises before five and sets before 10. The weather here is glorious. What a lovely land this isle is.

So a very good night of sleep, after some 30 hours of travel, and I am fit and ready to take on the world.

Off to London by train today. Work there then back tomorrow.

I like walking around London. It is so old. As the seat of the Anglo Colonial Empire it has many monuments and memorials which offer a glimpse into the past. We’ll be staying near Buckingham palace, right by Hyde Park. Plenty of room to walk and gawk. I do look forward to it all…

All good.
