from St Jean de Luz to central London

Three days into our stay in London and I had quite forgotten just what it's like being in a mega city with millions of other people. It is quite a world away from the quiet luxuriousness of St Jean de Luz.

In the space of a little over 72 hours we have seen eight sets of friends, been to a board meeting with an international charity, visited the Tate Modern, visited the National Portrait Gallery, watched the May Day march, been invited to a celeb OK party, walked eighteen kilometres along the Thames and its many tourist sites, eaten Japanese, Indian and Italian food and had a few pints of proper beer. The highlight was the NPG, if you ever have an afternoon to spare I highly recommend taking one of the daily guided tours, fascinating.

Tomorrow and the days thereafter promise even more. We are cramming as much in as we can before we return to our stressful life in the Basque country. All very exhausting but fabulous fun.
