On the plane from San Francisco to Heathrow, I had the good fortune of sitting next to a very nice Spanish woman who supplied me with some interesting conversation and helped guide me through the Heathrow airport to the ground transport terminals when the plane landed. I don't recall her name, but she was very sweet and even gave me a hug when we parted ways.
At the bus ticket kiosk, an extremely helpful ticket attendant helped me purchase the correct "echo ticket" as was the term for a round-trip ticket, which I found rather clever. I think I liked his accent the most of all the great British accents I heard today.
When I boarded the bus, or “coach” as it was called, and my ride into London commenced, I was filled with exhilaration. It occurred to me that at that, at that very moment, I was the furthest from anyone I know that I have ever been.
