|London suburbia - some houses in Caroline's new neighborhood.|

|This was in the Tate Modern.|

|St. Paul's, from the Millennium Bridge (a.k.a the Wobbly Bridge), a pedestrian bridge that goes from the Tate Modern across the river to The City.|
|Tower Bridge off in the distance. London Bridge is the closer bridge.|
After going to the Tate Modern, I met some of my old IBM UK colleagues for drinks at the Mulberry Bush, a pub across the street from our old office at IBM Southbank. Then we went out for a meal at Pizza Express before we all headed home. I got the Bakerloo Line up to Marylebone and waited for the train back to Larry's house in Seer Green.

Yesterday (Thursday) I went out to Richmond, Surrey, where I used to live. I met up with my old manager Brendan Blake and his wife Teresa. Brendan and I took a walk up to Richmond Park and along the river.
Before heading back into London from Richmond so that I could get the train back out from London to Seer Green, I did some shopping and got the ingredients to make shrimp creole. When I got back to Larry's house I made shrimp creole for Larry and for his girlfriend Lorraine. It was a good think I bought frozen shrimp because it took me nearly two hours to get back there.
Right now I am sitting in a coffee shop. I will shortly be heading to St. Pancras station to get the train, through the Channel Tunnel, to Brussels. I will arrive in Brussels this afternoon. I have a place booked just a short walk from the Midi train station in Brussels, which is where I arrive. It looks like a nice place. I'm looking forward to being in Brussels tonight.
