Things are happening

Would you credit it? It’s now only about two weeks until it’s time to say goodbye Picadilly and take off from Gatwick, westward across the Atlantic.

Preparations have been quietly perculating in the background. I’ve been confirming details with my various hosts, planning what things I’m going to have to pack, checking the sort of weather I’m going to have to be dealing with, and sorting out how I’m getting around.

I will be using the Greyhound service, a decision that has prompted a sort of bewildered horror in most. Lots of awful stories cropping up from the usual babies crying to public oral sex, and it’s true that only recently there was a rather grisly affair in Canada…

But I mean, that’s Canada. Comparative savages. Americans are far more reasonable. Right?

Still, car rental costs are prohibitively high – a fact my parents are somewhat relieved about, I think. Amtrak is limited and apparently more expensive whilst being of similar or worse quality. So it rather seems I have no choice. Greyhound it is. Maybe I’ll get some good anecdotes.

Maybe I’ll get a DS.
