I must be getting old, I really didn’t handle the flights very well at all this time. I had a middle seat in a row of three on the first leg so my sardine comment was very accurate. My aisle seat on the Dubai to London leg was great but by then I had a killer headache and nothing apart from strong painkillers and a good sleep was going to fix it.
Even though I felt like s#%t I was thrilled to be able to find my way to Natalia’s place in Leyton via the London Underground.
I always thought the “tube” was completely underground – but, no, it goes under and above ground.. There you go, that’s my piece of useless information for the day.
I also saw may first red double decker London bus from the tube and was all excited. Then I saw another fifty and it wasn’t so exciting anymore but I would like to try and sketch one.
Poor Natalia, I felt so bad, I was terrible company and could hardly keep my eyes open once I got here. I finally put her out of her misery and fell asleep after a couple of hours.
