what it's been
Oh boy, was that a long trip.
But here is a rainbow in the Scottish Highlands.
It's inexpressibly great to be home, and in time, when my mixed feelings have worn off and the songs from Andy's show are out of my head, I'll only remember the good parts, probably.

won't you give me a smile
So now we're in London. London, in parts, looks strikingly like New York, and I feel very much at home walking around here. But I miss New York and its comparatively inexpensive living. I miss the air-conditioned subway cars, and the relative lack of public intoxication, and the restaurants we go to (okay, I miss Mugs, mainly), and Sunday mornings in the kitchen with Steve and the Times, and the general routine of a normal life. I also feel like I'm missing out on the deliciousness of early autumn, even though it's kind of been autumn for me since August. So really I don't feel very much at home at all, I guess.
Enough wistfulness, though. My goals for our time in London are:
- See all the free stuff, plus a few famous things we have to pay for, like the Tower of London.
- Buy a lot of clothes from places they don't have back home so that I can at least think that I look cooler than everyone.
- Possibly get a haircut. There is a place across the street from where we're staying seeking hair models, and I have done the hair model thing before with success, but Andy thinks it's a bad idea.
And that is it.
