Yesterday 20,000 education workers, community members, and random people who like a protest gathered at Queen's Park to protest proposed cuts to education. I think it turned out well . . . Continue reading

We fly home today. How could a vacation have flown by so quickly? Of course today the sun came out and it looks like it will be a beautiful day. While our time in London was shorter than we might... Continue reading

Because Thursday had been such a day on the go we hadn't made any really significant plans for Friday. In fact, we had no plans at all. For breakfast we went to a restaurant near the apartment that had been... Continue reading

OK, technically it wasn't our first day in London but we didn't do much on arrival day other than survive and explore our neighbourhood. Yesterday we spread a bit further afield. Our first need (after coffee and showers) was breakfast.... Continue reading
