I'm back in London!
The flight from Vancouver to here has been a weird one. In fact, this whole past month has been a weird one. Can't quite describe it. But anyway. I got on the plane to Frankfurt (- via lovely Lufthansa) and spent just under ten hours pretending to not have a tailbone. Alas, I really do have a tailbone - which means that when I finally unflued myself from the airplane seat I felt like someone took a sledgehammer to my backside. Otherwise, all good. The flight from Frankfurt to London was much shorter, it was pretty neat looking out the window and seeing the English Channel...enjoyed that. It's small enough to look like something from a map! Although the first pilot flew the plane like I play video games. It was a little unnerving. Took the Piccadilly Line to my hostel, where the instructions made it seem much closer than it really is. Their 200 meters really ended up to be something like four giant freaking blocks. Carrying my laptop as well, it was painful. Got a sim card at a place called 'Phones4U' - or such. Was pretty easy, since I already have the (unlocked!) phone. I got my phone unlocked at 111 W BRoadway in Vancouver - a small shop that does all sorts of conversion things near the Mountain Euipment Co-op, and other travelling stores. They charged me 20$ CAD for it, which is far better than the $50CAD that Rogers charges. Zing! So. That's it. May go out to the Steam Engine or the like, a little pub in Waterloo. I stayed in that hostel last november. Great people, although there was no kitchen - and while they had WiFi, they had no computers. I'll see if Iain gets back to me anytime soon..
Otherwise, vaguely jetlagged. My hostel room is full of people from - Macedonia? I can tell they speak some Serbian in there and something else...it's interesting trying to guess the language.
