So... Hmm... I missed the bus. (Don't worry, it all works out okay, I'm just trying to be dramatic.) Went to the contiki meeting last night, met a heap of people, about half of who's names I remember. Had a great old time!! Maybe should've eaten dinner tho. Got back to my hotel and to bed around 1:30am. Had an alarm set for 4:45 to get up in time to make the bus. Slept right through it. Woke up at 6:30 and started swearing. A lot. Got and uber over ...
... so exquisite and stored under low light which is movement sensitive so you can see them.Magnifying glasses thoughtfully provided. Lunched at Le Pain Quotidien which has lost its mojo a bit..has opening numerous branches diluted the enthusiasm.Still a good lunch of charcuterie and cheeses with decent coffee. Shoe exhibition beckoned so D went to Science Museum while I went to that.Amazing collection of all shoes over the ages.Chinese bud feet shoes as big as a large seed pod ...

Thanks so much to all of you who have stuck with me on this journey and been reading and commenting! I'm sure I will jet off into the sunset as soon as time and money allows, there are still many places (far flung islands in particular) that I want to go to, and when I do I shall blog about them too :D
Lots of love!
