Current status

I managed to sleep reasonable hours last night. Last evening my lost luggage status updated to 'in transit for delivery,' and it looks like it got loaded for delivery this morning. However by now it is 3:30 and no bike yet. If it shows up by 4 I could still make it to Brussels. I am trying to remain realistic. The delivery service could be like FedEx, after all.

To take my mind off things this morning, I went for a long walk down towards the Thames and over to the Tate Modern. I am glad I at least got to see a stretch of the river. It was an interesting contrast to the Chicago River.  The tidal flow is a total skookumchuck, impressive to watch.

I would have liked a chance to see more parks/gardens. There are so few animals in the middle of this city. It would be interesting to compare its insect life to New York City (a friend of mine studies this).

It was also interesting to see that the British Library has a centralized book display similar to one in a Yale library. I suspect I know which of the two was the copycat but I could be wrong.

:-) Something tells me the Brits don't use this word. But they should!

Everybody should. I've been trying to work it into conversations.
