Very briefly  
I am in London.

I have never loved London more.

I am going out to love it up close and personally.

Thank goodness, Rai and Pin!

lobelia's husband still stuck in Paris, wanted to try ferry. I told her of your experience, she asked what flight you took?

Air France 1980, but it was one of a handful of AF flights that took off. BA have put on more capacity, I think they would be a better bet!

All managed well so far, bought lunch, a Big Issue and a rain hat. Told my tail of woe to man in post office who laughed a lot.

*adopts gravely London-voice: "Welcome back, my dear. You should never have left."

Are you up for morning tea in the V&A at 10 tomorrow/ I will text you the details when I get back to my room, in the lobby due to dead internet, boo, hiss!

It depends on whether we'll have train service from Bromley into London tomorrow, but I can carefully say "I'll try".

Alas, my phone would not call yours for love or money (it is working about 50% of the time, I am CURSED with tech this trip!), but I will be back in the next year, both London and Germany, and so will demand to hunt you down.

And, let's be realistic, I may be back this afternoon if the weather closes in ...

Glad you made it there safely, sorry your holiday wound up with a higher adventure to relaxation ratio than you'd anticipated! Hope the rest of the trip is fun and your travel is uneventful.

...you picked a very bad day for it, is all I can say.

Oh fie, it's warmer than Paris! And by the time it started snowing, I had finished my shopping and was ensconced in the V&A, so all was well!

But the rain... I went swimming, then to return some books to the Birkbeck library. After fifteen minutes, I retreated to Waterstones, and then home.

Phew! That was an adventure. :D

Give London my love. And it was nice to have you at dinner with Push and me last night. *nudgewink*
