time to learn the "other" English language once again, as I'm back in
London for the
first time in many years. It didn't take long to be impressed. At Heathrow
airport, I asked a Londoner how late the Tube operated, as I was trying to get
to the hotel late at night. Once she heard I was going to the SoHo
area, she said "Just ride with me, my driver is waiting right
outside." So off we went, my new friend Jane
and I, in our little limo. Jane is an
art consultant, and a lovely woman for not laughing at my naiveté. "What's
the difference between a quid, a pound and a pence?" (= A buck, a dollar
and a penny.) And she didn't scoff when I looked out my window and gasped at
the sight of Harrods. Fantastic!
I had a quick walk about to check out the nightlife, and it is apparently
kicking. Even at the
streets of SoHo were loud and festive. The
mega nightclub Heaven was closed (imagine that, ME - locked out of Heaven!), so
I went to 79CXR. Boy, with a $6 cover and $7 drinks, I would never run the risk
of becoming an alcoholic here.
More later, my Internet time is running out...
