Gone Layabout in London

Since arriving in London we have done little except lay around our room at London Guest House. I arrived ill. After consulting my home physician by e-mail, the internet, and a London pharmacists it appears as if I probably suffered from “travelers illness.” Although it began in Paris, I prefer to call it King George’s Revenge.

Laying in for a few days has given us the opportunity to revel in English language television. Three months in France left us longing for hearing English spoken on a regular basis. Our friends JP and Elli were the only people to whom we could speak English and we were only with them for about 5 weeks of our time in France. We’ve watched lots of mysteries. Tonight we’ll watch a football (soccer) match on TV when Great Britain plays Montenegro in the Euro 2012 Qualifiers.



About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
