Be careful London
3 April 2008
I have had this plan for a very long time, and I don’t know why it took me this long. Next Saturday at 9.30am (blimey that’s early!) I would keep away from anywhere close to Pimlico if I were you.
I have had my driving license since I was 18 (that was in another century!) and have driven many miles. But I am going to take 2-3 lessons just to see how I, as a non Briton, am going to react to the fact that:
a. the steering wheel and gear stick will be on the other side of the car
b. traffic will be coming from the other side too
It seems the most safe option to do this is accompanied by a driving instructor. If all goes well, and if I actually survive driving around in London (which I have no intention of doing a lot of after this by the way) I will go and explore certain parts of the country. It is about time, the UK has such incredible places to visit. Actually, I have just booked a holiday to one of them.
If you are wondering where all those drawings come from all of a sudden, well I bought this book, and now I am kind of hooked on drawing. It might go away again, but right now I am in the middle of it. Can recommend the book if you (like me) like to draw but think you have no talent . It is very inspiring.
