I’m resting my legs a bit from all the walking and find out that the final Hobbit movie is named the Battle of Five Armies? Peter, I love what you did with LotR but this is not good. I’m sensing a serious case of battle fatigue…
I think I’m just going to look at dinosaurs at the Natural history museum if there are less people. In the morning there were about a zillion people queueing so I went to Victoria & Albert instead.
Hello from London and the hotel with awfully slow internet. I got rained on when I was first walking to my hotel but other than that the weather has been fine. Sun was even shining properly this morning.
I’ve seen the Rosetta stone and 221B Baker Street (which is actually in the wrong place looking at the numbers). I’ve walked a lot, today on the southbank from the Tower to Westminster bridge and then through St. James Park (there were still pelicans) and Hyde Park back to hotel. I’ve been confused by the spring because roses in april is not supposed to happen (well, not back home anyway) and the ties of the men here, apparently the options are ugly or no tie at all. I keep wanting to say nice suit but burn that thing around your neck.
All this means to say I’m having an awesome time.

Remember those posters that said, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”? Well, that’s true of every day but one - the day you die.
There’s plenty worse than me. I just understand the way things are. How many Starks have they got to behead before you figure it out?
Of what is revolt composed? Of nothing and of everything. Of an electricity disengaged, little by little, of a flame suddenly darting forth, of a wandering force, of a passing breath. This breath encounters heads which speak, brains which dream, souls which suffer, passions which burn, wretchedness which howls, and bears them away.
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
You have to know who you are, and what you are. It’s the only way to lead decent lives.
