Love & Death

It's a touch comforting to know that Mark Twain, a fellow American--nay, Missourian--could be slightly profound:

"The traveler is wiser than he who has never left his own doorstep."

Adam and Eve it, London is a big, bad city (in the most loving sense).

I'm not one for a bust tour, but the one yesterday, led by Debra, was highly entertaining. I never would have thought that for 400 years, public executions were the place to see, be seen and, well, be-headed. Hangings, were apparently something you could take the kids to, but they were sort of slopping. If you really wanted to witness how to beautifully execute an execution, just look for a gleaming sword and a hooligan lot.

Let's see, what else. Changing of the guard. Piccadilly. Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp fans.
