Once again I find myself in London, waiting to fly out of the UK.  I've already done all the touristy stuff here, well most of it anyway, but I came a couple of days early so I could meet an old friend.

Michelle kindly came up from West Sussex to spend the day with me, and fullfill her promise of buying me fish & chips at the seaside.  Before heading to the coast, we went on the London Eye, which is one of the few touristy things I haven't done in the big smoke.  It was ok, a nice view of the city, but nothing exceptional, although I didn get some nice shots of parliament.

After that we headed out of the city and took the train to Michelle's house, a good hour and a half away.  Her family were lovely, and I got a nice personal piano recital from her mum. :)  Then it was off to Bognor Regis where Chelle bought me the fish & chips by the sea she's been promising me for 10 years.  :)  It was a lovely day and an excellent start to my wee trip. :)

I'm off to Kuala Lumpur tomorrow, with a 14 hour stop over in Sri Lanka, so that should be fun. :(  I don't get into Borneo until Tuesday, so it's going to be a long couple of days, with a lot of lower back pain.  But then I think about the tropical beach I can relax on at the end of it, and suddenly it's not so painful. :)
