The view from the National Gallery. Today is my last in London. Tomorrow I head back to Ankara for the next phase. (Mrs. Tragos to join me there on Monday.) The San Diegan and English times are over for now.
Last weekend, we were a lucky duo. The inestimable Byronic and her husband Mr. Byronic invited us for dinner. They are two of the funniest, most civilized, and generous hosts you will find in London (where they live), in Bologna (where Byronic is from), or Frankfurt (where Mr. Byronic is from).
Through mussels, fish, chocolates, and plenty of wine, we discussed many matters under the sun, including soccer fandom, British students of English literature, poisonous squid, British university madness, and the times in our life when we most strongly suspected we were peaking (very intriguing). And much, much else.
So: to the wonderful Byronics (and by extension, Tumblr): thank you!
And to London: see you soon you cold, dark, but somehow still enticing conurbation.
