Thanks to zenmeisterin and Pedro for last night. Took my mind off things and was good to get out and about in London Town with two people I don't think I've really been out drinking with before (well certainly not with Pedro as he's just arrived from Brazil for a few days!).
Pedro also came bearing gifts from Fabi (thanks Fabi! I'll mail you in the next couple of days!!:) who is one of the people I met and became friends with during my memorable trips to Brazil. I will return! To be honest I 'need' to return - I miss the place and the people so much.
Anyway, it was a good night with much talking.
Should do things like that more often.
It was also quite nice walking through Green Park and Hyde Park. Don't see enough green-stuff. Must try and get out into the country at somepoint for some full-on green-ness :-p
