Isn’t England marvelous? The hop, skip and the jump, well not quite, on the Stanstead Express to Liverpool Street, the twenty minutes sitting at the station in the tube, on the Hammersmith Line, waiting to go to Paddington, only to be told that the District Line and Hammersmith Line are both closed because of faulty signals and then off I went, Central Line to Oxford Circus, change to the Bakerloo Line for Paddington and, over the tannoy, blaring, ‘Big Brother’ warning all and sundry to take extra precautions because of the excessive heat; it has hit 23 degrees celsius in Great Britain’s “Big Smoke”. Still, the hotel room is clean, it has an internet connection, a flat screened television and a nice little tea maker and all of that for fifty pounds sterling. Welcome to ‘Blighty’, ‘Old Bean’.
