My Grandmother was proud to have become an American, and had very little memory of England - but she always had a quiet respect for the British Monarchy. I wonder what she would think of the current state of American Politics - I don't think she would be proud of it.
I am way past due for a visit to London. It has been 5 or 6 years. So long in fact that the pound coins that I have will be demonetized this year. London is wonderful and crazy. It is huge, while being compact, it is diverse, while being British, it is a maze, with an amazing public transit system. I remember the last visit there, it felt like a second home. Perhaps I was meant to live on Old Queen Street.
Where were you meant to live?
