Just a quick update to let people know of my pending arrival in London:
I will be in London on the night of the 3rd, staying with some friends who live on Kildare Walk, Limehouse. If anyone wants to come for a skate or bicycle ride from there to the Square on Saturday morning, then let me know either by email or comment on this post. Anyone who knows how to get from there to Trafalgar Square would be especially welcome I will get back to you with a more exact meeting location for Saturday morning in Limehouse on Friday night.
Right now I am in the Colchester Public Library. The roads so far from Harwich have been OK; I have followed the cycle route 51. I have now finally changed some money, and will be buying a map so I can find my way to London. This country is a bit of a labarynth of roads.
The plan for London is to stay a week or so to get my extended tourist visa for the US sorted out. And then I will go home to NZ. Details of how I will be doing this will come later…
