IT’S THE END OF THE CHALLENGE! And I am completely zapped. I can’t even believe I finished this time.
I’m back in the British Library, reading more newspapers in the Newsroom. I’m wearing my scarf around me like a shawl; they won’t let you take coats into the reading rooms, and it’s freezing in here. In fact, it’s been cold this week, and the bank holiday weekend promises to be even cooler. I forgot to wear a jumper today, too.
I’ll probably bail soon and go visit Word on the Water again. My time here, though short, has been fruitful–I’ve made enough notes on things I can research elsewhere, and I do need to do some field research, and walk around in actual places.
London Transport Museum might be on the agenda as well. If not this visit, then perhaps another time. I have a source, a lovely British gentleman I met online through a photos page on Facebook, who has a keen interest in British transport and is from London originally, about the time I’m researching.
We’re not meeting in person this visit, because he lives too far from here, and I have neither the time nor the money to travel outside the city. But he’s agreed to answer questions via email.
Once I’ve posted this post and possibly the A-Z Reflection, don’t expect to hear from me until I get back. I’ll have a review of both legs–overnight and not–of my British Airways flights for you, complete with pictures (!).
See you soon.
Congrats on making it through the A-Z challenge! Knew you could do it ;) . Don’t forget to stock up on British snacks before you head back home.
Ha, I won’t! I wonder if they’ll let me carry on a grocery bag, in addition to my suitcase and backpack. Or I could just stash sweets inside my shoes….sadly, crisps will be crushed before I can get them home. >:P

The London Transport Museum is excellent! I love it – I’ve been twice and find it fascinating, the last time I was there they had a special display of Tube posters throughout history. And, unless I am mistaken/they’ve changed it, you can use the ticket again within a year.
PS – that is WARM.Have fun at Word on the Water…only a little jealous.
I might not make it this time–we’ll see. If not, I can go next time. If there is a next time. I’m deathly afraid I’ll get stuck in Stupidville forever and ever. :(
Yeah, it was kind of warm after all–I had to take my coat off when walking to the park, but the wind was cold–especially on the train platform! Brr!!
