I used to live in a town called Reading, about halfway between here and London, and I would come here a lot for day trips at the weekend. I still can't get over the irony of the fact that in order to experience this city at the high end of the market, as it were, I had to first go to live in the USA and marry an American woman.
There is a good art museum here, the Holburne, but it's currently closed for renovations. We don't have much time to do anything other than to see old friends at the university, and to consume as much great Indian food as we can before moving on to the conference. And then on Monday, it's back to Chicago to brace ourselves for the onslaught of winter.
