"You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London..."

Photobucket"...No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." - Samuel Johnson

Though the trip was wonderful it's nice to be back...as it was at once mentally relaxing and physically draining...probably due to the fact that Mr. Heb and I tend to eschew such conveniences as buses and trains and walk back and forth...from one end of London to the other...every single day...changing direction on a whim...and tacking another couple of miles onto our journey.

Still the weather was (in the main) perfect for schlepping around in...the air was full of the scents of Spring (masses of flowers, freshly mown grass, and pain au raisin from Pret A Manger)...and I finally, after years of zoo visits, managed to see what a meerkat pup looks like (not a huge feat I grant you but unexpected and pleasing).

Enough for now...expect more detailed posts on various London related topics...food...probably more food (I was a little glutinous so all that walking was, in a way, a necessity)...and...shopping...in the next few days. For the time being a few holiday snaps...mainly museum, zoo, or Kew Garden related...though a schmaltzy tourist shot did sneak in (you officially, and rather sickeningly, know you're homesick when you start taking pictures of Big Ben...especially moonlit ones).

    Welcome home! I did not realize how reliant I am on your posts until you were gone. Can't wait to see what you picked up in London.
