Jon Crispin's Notebook

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.
