Freezing in 31 degrees

Its 31 degrees today. Somehow I spent it shivering... let me explain... I'm not sick thankfully. I did spend most of it in the computer server room under the air-con set to 18 degrees. Brrr! Somehow 31 degrees in London is not the same as 31 degrees in Sydney. Sydney sun is much harsher. That goes along way to explain why English girls are often fair skinned.

London Tube

Ok, now I have really experienced the real London. The weather was hot at 28 degrees and blue skies. That means nothing on its own but the tube (London speak for trains) was experiencing massive delays going home. In London many trains don't seem to have air-con. In trains where your packed in like sardines (Sydney trains are nothing) with no airflow, all I can say is that I'm thankful that I'm not vertically challenged and my view is not some guy's sweaty armpits

Kew Gardens

It's Sunday, sunny and the sky's blue. Couldn't resist and had to go out to Kew Gardens. It's a massive botanical park that is part Government funded, part self funding (8.50 pounds entry). Lots of botanical research happens there too.
