Well it’s been a while to put it mildly. I’ve been trying to write, or at least to pass by my sites, but it has been an issue of time.
There isn’t even a land line near here, and in any case over the last couple of weeks, there hasn’t been time. Almost every morning since the 29th of November, I’ve had to get up at 6AM to get to work. The first week, I made it on time three times. The other days, it was impossible.
When I was in Marble Arch, incidentally it was much easier to get to work. It took less than 45 minutes to get to work once I got the train timing down, that’s why I was early the three times. However, the trip from Marble Arch to Charlton was fraught with disappointment.
First, the last time I was in London, I went out on a date with this Nigerian guy I had met online. He’s a social activist, and he was very interesting in terms of what he was interested in, working on.
We’ve been communicating, and well the date was ‘interesting’. We talked, he played Sunny Ade in his car (I love Sunny Ade now. The music was so beautiful.) I We went to dinner. I don’t know how things are done in England, but he made me get the Tube to the college where he works, and the drove me to North London for Chinese food.
