Welcome to London

After seven-and-a-half years, I have now left London.  The saying goes that if you're tired of London, you're tired of life, but that's a rather restrictive view.  For all the energy, diversity and culture of this wonderful city, there are no mountains and limited opportunities for outdoor pursuits.  And for building a family, it's a challenging place.  That's why I will call Baden, a small town near Zurich, my home for the foreseeable future.  The picture to the right and the rant against the refurbishment of Exhibition Road are the only elements in these pages to keep a connection with London.

Though they're a few years old now, I want to keep two travel pieces that I wrote after visiting Syria a few years back prominently displayed.  Syria is a magical country with deep history, the atmosphere of 1001 nights and wonderfully warm people that deserve better than decades terror, first by the Assads and now by assorted savages.
