and quite MAD (in a funny way) from the overnight flight from NYC to London in 51H (don’t ask) with probably not-exactly-2-hours-sleep but the Virgin Atlantic staff were splendid – all perky british essex voices and a kindly way about them – especially when dispensing tea or hot chocolate (nobody was allowed coffee as we were all supposed to Sleep) and then the Lights Went Out and we all did, duly, sleep (sort of).
now we’re here!
London looks lovely in the rain.
but there again, it always did….
we had a little snafu before we left Manhattan – our hostess for tuesday night suddenly got STRUCK down by a Flu Virus *shudder* and so we decided we had better NOT get sick as we’re en route to South Africa to do some important work (well, we’re not doing it, who-we-are-in-RL is doing that bit, but we’ll be reporting in Here).
this is the only thing that still annoys us about England – the private worlds of the privileged.
yes, yes, we *know* Los Angeles has many a gated community – but one doesn’t know about them unless one does know about them – here the private parks are on full display and one presses one’s nose up against the railings to no avail. *sigh*.
this is our little room in the eaves.
isn’t it sweet?
one could almost be in paris with a rooftop view.
and now we take a short nap.
before heading out into the night to thrill to the lights of soho and Beyond.
crazy with lack of sleep but remembering to use a Proper English Accent, darlings.
