The flight arrived on time and the twelve hours although on board passed quickly and without having incident. To be confident, the high quality of the Cathay Pacific service was exemplary after again.
Heathrow reminds me of Newark International. The décor comes straight out of the sterile 80’s and is much less an eyesore than an insipid background to the rhythm of human activity, such hustle and bustle, at the fore. There definitely are faces from all races present, generating a wealthy mosaic of humanity which is refreshing if not totally revitalizing after swimming for so lengthy in a sea of Chinese faces in Hong Kong.
Web access is sealed in England, it appears. Nothing at all is totally free every little thing is egregiously monetized from the wireless hotspots down to the desktop terminals. I guess Hong Kong has spoiled me with its abundant, free of charge access to the details superhighway.
Regardless of staying in a space with five other backpackers, I have been sleeping effectively. The mattress and pillow are firm my earplugs hold the noise out and the sleeping quarters are as dark as a cave when the lights are out, and only as bright as, perhaps, a dreary rainy day when on. All in all, St. Paul’s is a outstanding location to stay for the gregarious, adventurous, and penurious city explorer – couchsurfing may be a tenable alternative I’ll test for subsequent time.
Yesterday Connie and I gorged ourselves at the borough industry exactly where there had been all sorts of delectable, savory victuals. There was undoubtedly a European flavor to the meals fair: simmering sausages had been to be discovered everywhere and significantly as the meat was plentiful, and genuine, so have been the dairy delicacies, in the type of myriad rounds of cheese, stacked higher behind checkered tabletops. Of course, we washed these tasty morsels down with copious amounts of alcohol that flowed from cups as though amber waterfalls. For the very first time I attempted mulled wine, which tasted like warm, rancid fruit punch – the excellent tonic for a drizzling London day, I suppose. We later killed the afternoon at the pub, shooting the breeze whilst imbibing a number of diminutive half-pints in the approach. Receiving smashed at 4 in the afternoon does not appear like such a negative issue anymore, particularly when you are having fun in the organization of buddies I can more appreciate why the English do it so significantly!
Earlier in the day, we visited the Tate Modern. Its turbine room lived up to its prominent billing what with a giant spider, comprehensive with bulbous egg sac, anchoring the retrospective exhibit. The permanent galleries, too, had been a delight upon which to feast one’s eyes. Picasso, Warhol and Pollock ruled the chambers of the upper floors with the items of their lithe wrists and I ended up becoming a huge fan of cubism, although creating a disdain for abstract art and its vacuous images, which, I really feel, are devoid of each motivation and emotion.
My 1st trip yesterday morning was to Emirates Stadium, residence of the Arsenal Gunners. It towers imperiously more than the surrounding neighborhood yet for all its majesty, the location certain was quiet! Business did pick up later, however, when the armory shop opened, and dozens of fans descended on it like bees to a hive. I, also, swooped in on a gift-buying mission, and wound up purchasing a book for Godfrey, a scarf for a student, and a jersey – on sale, of course – for very good measure.
I am sitting in the Westminster Abbey Museum now, resting my weary legs and burdened back. So far, I’ve been verily impressed with what I’ve noticed, such a confluence of splendor and history prior to me that it would demand days to absorb it all, when regretfully I can spare only a handful of hours. My favorite part of the abbey is the poets corner exactly where no much less a literary luminary than Samuel Johnson rests in peace – his bust confirms his homely presence, which was so vividly captured in his biography.
For lunch I had a steak and ale pie, served with mash, taken alongside a Guinness, extra cold – 2 degrees centigrade colder, the bartender explained. It went down properly, like all the other scrumptious meals I’ve had in England and no doubt by now I have grown accustomed to inebriation at half previous two. Apart from, Liverpool have been playing inspired football against Blackburn and my lunch was total.
Obtaining had my fill of football, I decided to skip my ticket scalping endeavor at Stamford Bridge and instead wandered over to the British Museum to inspect their in depth collections. Along the way, my eye caught a theater, its doors wide open and admitting consumers. With much rapidity, I subsequently checked the show times, saw that a efficiency was set to start, and at final rushed to the box office to purchase a discounted ticket – if you contact a 40 pound ticket a deal, that is. That’s how I grabbed a seat to watch Hairspray in the West Finish.
The show was worth forty pounds. The music was addictive and the stage design and effects had been not so a lot kitschy as delightfully stimulating – the pulsating background lights had been at once scintillating and penetrating. The actors as effectively were vivacious, oozing charisma while they danced and delivered lines dripping in humor. Hairspray is a top quality production and most undoubtedly suggested.
At breakfast I sat across from a man who asked me to which country Hong Kong had been returned – China or Japan. That was quite funny. Then he began spitting on my meals as he spoke, fully oblivious to my breakfast becoming the receptacle in which the fruit of his inner churl was getting placed. I guess I realize the convention presently of covering one’s mouth while speaking and masticating at the identical time!
We in fact conversed on London life in general, and I praised London for its racial integration, the act of which is a prodigious leap of faith for any society, trying to be inclusive, accepting all sorts of people. It wasn’t as although the Brits had been trying in vain to be all factors to all men, using Spanish with the guests from Spain, German with the Germans and, even, Hindi with the Indians, regardless of whether or not or not Hindi was their native language not even considering the absurd concept of encouraging the international adoption of their language thereby totally maintaining English in English hands and enabling its proud polyglots to "practice" their languages. Indeed, the attempt of the Londoners to avail themselves of the rich mosaic of ethnic expertise, and to seek a widespread understanding with a ubiquitous English accent is an exemplar, and the bedrock for any world city.
I celebrated Jesus’ resurrection at the St. Andrew’s Street Church in Cambridge. The parishioners of this Baptist church have been warm and affable, and I met several of them, including one particular visiting (Halliday) linguistics scholar from Zhongshan university in Guangzhou, who in reality had visited my tiny City University of Hong Kong in 2003. The service itself was much more standard and the believers fewer in number than the "progressive" services at any of the charismatic, evangelical churches in HK however that is what makes this portion of the physique of Christ special besides, the message was as brief as a powerpoint slide, and informative no much less the power word which spoke into my life being a question from John 21:22 – what is that to you?
Large trees exquisite lawns and old, pointy colleges that’s Cambridge in a nutshell. Sitting here, sipping on a half-pint of Woodforde’s Wherry, I’ve had a leisurely, if not languorous, day so far my sole duty consisting of walking about although absorbing the verdant atmosphere as even though a sponge, camera in tow.
I am back at the sublime beer, savoring a pint of Sharp’s DoomBar just before my fish and chips arrive the drinking age is 18, but any person whose visage even hints of youthful brilliance is probably to get carded these days, the bartender told me. The youth drinking culture here is virtually as twisted as the university drinking culture in America.
My stay in Cambridge, relaxing and desultory as it may possibly be, is about to finish following this late lunch. I an not positive if there is something left to see, save for the American graveyard which rests an not possible two miles away. I have had a fantastic time in this town and am thankful for the access into its living history – the residents here have to demonstrate exceptional patience and tolerance what with so many vacationers ambling on the streets, peering – and photographing – into each and every nook and cranny.
There are no rubbish bins, but I’ve noticed on the streets numerous mixed race couples in which the guys have a tendency to be white – the girls also belonging to a light colored ethnicity, typically some sort of Asian as properly saw some black dudes and Indian dudes with white chicks.
Individuals right here hold doors, even at the entrance to the toilet. Often it seems as though they are going out on a limb, just waiting for the a single who will take the responsibility for the door from them, at which point I rush out to relieve them of such a fortuitous burden.
I visited the British Museum this morning. The two hours I spent there did neither myself nor the exhibits any justice due to the fact there actually is as well a lot to survey, sufficient captivating stuff to final an whole day, I believe. The bottomless properly of artifacts from antiquity, drawing from sources as diverse as Korea, and Mesopotamia, is a credit to the British empire, with out whose looting most of this amazing booty would be unavailable for our purview greater, I feel, for these priceless treasures to be open to all in the grandest supermarket of history than away from human eyes, and worst but, in the hands of unscrupulous collectors or in the rubbish bin, possibly.
Irene and I took in the ballet Giselle at The Royal Opera House in the afternoon. The building is a plush marvel, and a testament to this city’s enjoy for the arts. The ballet itself was satisfying, the 1st half being superior to the second, in which the nimble dancers demonstrated their phenomenal dexterity in, of all places, a graveyard covered in a cloak of smoke and darkness. I admit, their dance of the dead, in such a gloomy necropolis, did strike me as, strange.
Two amicable ladies from Kent convinced me to go to their hometown tomorrow, where, they told me, the genuine, "working" Leeds Castle and the mighty intriguing house of Charles Darwin await.
I’m nursing a pint of Green King Ruddles and asking yourself about the profusion of British ales and lagers the British have carried out a excellent deed for the planet by creating an interminable line of low-alcohol session beers that can be enjoyed at breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner and their disservice is this: apart from this inexhaustible provide of low cost beer ensnaring my inner alcoholic, I really feel myself placing on my freshman fifteen, almost ten years soon after the reality I am going to have to run a bit tougher back in Hong Kong if I want to burn all this malty fuel off.
Irene recommended I stop by the National Art Gallery considering that we had been in the location and it was an hour nicely spent. The gallery presently presents a unique exhibit on Picasso, the non-ticketed section of which features several seductive renderings, which includes David spying on Bathsheba – repeated in clever variants – and parodies of other masters’ works. Furthermore, the major gallery houses two fabulous portraits by Joshua Reynolds, who happens to be favored of mine, he in life getting a close buddy of Samuel Johnson – I passed by Boswells, where its namesake initial met Johnson, on my way to the opera house.
I prayed last night, and went via my list, lifting everyone on it up to the Lord. That felt excellent that God is alive now, and ever present in my life and in the lives of my brothers and sisters.
Doubtless, then, I have felt quite wistful, as even though a specter in the land of the living, being in a place where religious fervor, it seems, is a thing of the past, a trifling for many, to be hidden away in the opaque corners of centuries-old cathedrals that are much more costly tourist destinations than liberating residences of worship these days. Certainly, I have but to see anybody pray, outdoors of the Easter service which I attended in Cambridge – for such an ecstatic moment in verily a grand church, would you believe that it was only attended by at most three dozen spirited ones. The people of England, and Europe in basic, have, it is my hope, only locked away the Word, relegating it to the quiet vault of their hearts. May possibly it be taken out in the sudden pause prior to mealtimes and in the still crisp mornings and cool, silent nights. There is nevertheless hope for a revival in this spot, for faith to rise like that splendid sun each morning. God would enjoy to rescue them, to deliver them in this day, it is certain.
I wonder what Londoners consider, if something at all, about their police state which, like a vine in the shadows, has taken root in all corners of everyday life, from the terrorist notifications in the underground, which implore Londoners to report all things suspicious, to the pair of dogs which eagerly stroll by means of Euston. What tends to make this all the far more incredible is the truth that even the United States, the indomitable nemesis of the fledgling, rebel order, does not dare bombard its citizens with such worry mongering these days, specially with Obama in office maybe we’ve grown sensible in these past handful of years to the dubious returns of surrendering civil liberties to the state, of possessing our bags checked everywhere – London Eye Hairspray and The Royal Opera Home check bags in London while the museums do not somehow, that does not add up for me.
I am in a majestic bookshop on New Street in Birmingham, and undoubtedly to confirm my suspicions, there are just as several books on the death of Christianity in Britain as there are books which try to murder Christianity everywhere. I did uncover, nonetheless, a good biography on John Wesley by Roy Hattersley and The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. I may possibly choose up the former.
Lunch with Sally was pleasant and mirthful. We dined at a French restaurant nearby New Street – yes, Birmingham is a cultural capitol! Sally and I both attempted their omelette, whilst her boyfriend had the fish, with out chips. Conversation was light, the levity was there and so was our reminiscing about those fleeting moments throughout our very first year in Hong Kong it is amazing how friendships can resume so all of a sudden with a smile. On their recommendation, I am on my way to Warwick Castle – they also recommended that I go to Cadbury World, but they can’t take on additional visitors at the moment, the tourist office staff informed me, a lot to my disappointment!
Visiting Warwick Castle genuinely produced for a great day out. The castle, components of which have been established by William the Conquerer in 1068, is as a lot a kitschy tourist trap as a meticulous preservation of history, at instances a sillier version of Ocean Park even though at other individuals a dignified dedication to a most glorious, inexorably English previous. The castle caters to all visitors and not surprisingly, that which delighted all audiences was a giant trebuchet siege engine, which for the five p.m. functionality hurled a fireball higher and far into the air – great! Taliban beware!
I am leaving on a jet plane this evening do not know when I will be back in England once more. I will miss this quirky, but endearing spot and that I shall miss Irene and Tom who so generously welcomed me into their residence, fed me, and suffered my use of their toilet and shower goes without having saying. I am grateful for God’s many blessings on this trip.
On the itinerary right now is a trip to John Wesley’s property, followed by a check out to the Imperial War Museum. Already this morning I picked up a tube of Oilatum, a week late possibly, which Teri recommended I use to treat this obstinate, dermal weakness of mine – I’m pleased to report that my skin has stopped crying.
John Wesley’s property is alive and properly. Services are still held in the chapel daily and its crypt, so far from being a cellar for the dead, is a bright, spacious museum in which all items Wesley are on show – I in no way realized how considerably of an iconic figure he became in England at the height of this idol frenzy, ironic in itself, he have to have been as common as the Beatles were at their apex. The property itself is a multi-story edifice with narrow, precipitous staircases and spacious rooms decorated in an 18th century fashion.
I found Samuel Johnson’s property within a maze of red brick hidden alongside Fleet Street. To be in the property of the man who wrote the English dictionary, and whose indefatigable love for obscure words became the inspiration for my personal lexical obsession, this, by far, is the climax of my visit to England! The greatest definitely has been saved for last.
There are a multitude of portraits hanging around the house like ornaments on a tree. Each likeness has its personal story, meticulously retold on the crib sheets in each and every area. Celebrities abound, like David Garrick and Sir Joshua Reynolds, who painted a number of of the finer pictures in the house. I have created a specific affinity for Oliver Goldsmith, of whom Boswell writes, "His particular person was brief, his countenance coarse and vulgar, his deportment that of a scholar awkwardly affecting the straightforward gentleman. It appears as even though I, too, could use a a lot more flattering description of myself!
I regretfully could not cease to attempt the curry in England I guess the CityU canteen’s take on the dish will have to do. I did, however, have the opportune process of flirting with the cute Cathay Pacific counter staff who checked me in. She was beautiful in red, light powder on her cheeks, with true diamond earrings, she said and her little, delicate face, commanded by a posh British accent rendered her positively irresistible, electrifying. Not only did she grant me an aisle seat but she had the gumption to return my fawning with zest she have to be a pro at this by now.
I saw her once again as she was pulling double-duty, collecting tickets prior to boarding. She remembered my quest for curry and in the fog of infatuation, exactly where nary a man has been made, I fumbled my words like the sloppy kid who has had too a lot punch. I am just an amateur, alas, an "Oliver Goldsmith" with the ladies – I got no game – booyah!
Some final, consequential bits: because of the chavs, Burberry no longer sells these fashionable baseball caps since of the IRA, rubbish bins are no longer a commodity on the streets of London, and as a outcome, the streets and the Underground of the city are a soiled mess and because of other terrorists from distant, far more arid lands, going by means of a Western airport has taken on the tedium of perfunctory process that doesn’t make me really feel any safer from my invisible enemies.
At last, I saw so many Indians operating at Heathrow that I could have effortlessly mistaken the place for Mumbai. Their presence shocked me because their portion of the general population surely must be significantly less than their portion of Heathrow employees, indicating some mysterious hiring bias. Regardless, they do a excellent job with cursory airport checks, and in basic are absurdly funny and witty when not tactless.
That’s all for England!
