Jon Crispin's Notebook


Posted in Cities, Family, People, Travel, Windows by joncrispin on 26/03/2012

Peter and I flew home yesterday.  It was an amazing trip and has solidified his wish to live in London, which I really hope he can do someday.  Saturday was a big day for us with lots of travel on the tube and walking.  As we were heading into central London from Heathrow we had a lovely exchange with a very nice woman who seemed to be about my age.  P and I were talking about where to stop off to wander around and get a bite to eat, and  she was apparently over-hearing our discussion.  As she was leaving the train at her stop she said, “English people aren’t meant to speak to people on trains, but Gloucester Road is a bit dire.  You might want to go on to South Kensington”.  England has changed a ton since I started going there, but I am occasionally reminded of why I love it so much.

    It certainly sounds and looks like you 2 had a wonderful time. Jace, you are an amazing Dad to take off this time to be in a place that Pete loves. These memories will always be with him and with you as well. Thanks for the blog as you moved across the countryside, and welcome home.

    Brings back so many wonderful memories of the Ithaca College days in London, living in South Ken, Gloucester Road through all our neighborhoods. Very cool you could share all this with Peter. I do hope he gets to live there someday.
