I have a new home for the next several months, and that home is the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.  So far it hasn’t rained, I’m still irritated with the exchange rate, and I’ve gotten much better at crossing the street.  I’ve gone on several strolls through Hyde Park, walked through Mayfair, and had a lovely time envisioning London of the 19th century, as depicted in so many of my favorite romance novels.  Next up:  the Tower of London!

And then tomorrow, the vacation stops– it’s time for class.  My classes should all be interesting:  British Life and Cultures, British History, and British Politics.  All the better to appreciate the intricacies of Regency and Victorian England!
