blogging from the iPhone !
It's 430 am Paris time and I am wide awake. Major jet lag issues! So the first day in London was great! I managed to reconcile with my divorced friend (perhaps we needed the distance?), explore a bit of the city, go to a rice queen bar where i proceeded to make out with some Russian, AND managed to get a tasty bag of krisps from marks and Spencer!!! Splendid!!
And what is this amazing store called primark??? I bought a pair of jeans there today for six pounds!!! And people said London was expensive!!! (it is!)
Mother and I are now in Paris for a few days. Today's plan is to hit up Versailles. Did I just say "mother and I"? Yea I did. Omg I'm becoming one of THOSE gays!! More on that after I visit my shrink to discuss!
The hotel we are at - Le Meridien Etoile - is light years better than the dumpy b&b we were at in London. But both places could not be less central if I tried. Thank you Hotwire. I am happy however that my piddly French went over well with the concierge downstairs!
On the plane ride over I was surrounded by a team of high school rugby players. That made the flight far more fun.
It's fast paced over here and there are a lot of people. It makes me miss the smaller town feel of vancouver. It doesn't help that my mother moves at a slower pace than she used to.
Ok off to attempt some sleep before getting up in a few hours.
