Janet’s Travel Diary

Monday, 10 Sep 2007

Location: London, UK

MapThe Ivy was AMAZING! Food very good & and the service was outstanding. One question - how do you fry an egg so that it is round (the same shape as it is in the shell) - crispy on the outside and runny on the inside? It confounded me...
They wouldnt allow cameras in there so I will have to expend some mental energy and write about it. Later.

Afterward Benny & I went to see the Chemical Brothers in Trafalgar Square, which was absolutely brilliant. I forgot just how good they are. Their set was supplemented by an excellent light show put on by United Visual Artists - certainly a gig I wont forget. Went to the afterparty and I paid £33 for 4 drinks - that is $80!!! Outrageous. It was hard to get out of bed the next morning.

Ben has convinced me to leave London. He said 'Jan, what is really different? You're working too much - its basically 'same shit different postcode'. Apparently I seem much happier but I am still yet to experience the revolutionary change that travel is supposed to bring...
He's right - I need to stop working and throw myself into the unknown (ie 7 months of being unemployed... can I do it? Can I live with myself for that long without 'routine'?) Actually I am very excited about it. Its a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so I have to get out there & just do it. Alright!
