Boston Apartment (Mar 29, 2009)

My final day in London saw me getting up late and heading off to Ajith’s place at Feltham (I think this may not be the right town – Ajith, correct me if I am wrong. Ah forget it…It’s a village anyway :D). It is situated close to Heathrow Airport.

The trip was quite uneventful – I caught the tube to Waterloo and from there I rode on the Southwest train to Feltham. The only unfortunate event occurred when at Waterloo the trolley handle of my huge bag broke. I had to literally bend and pull it from there on.

I lazed around in Feltham, shopping for few chocolates – Liqueur chocolates, and a huge amount of tea bags. I had taken quite a liking to the tea here and I bought a big pack of PG Tips tea bags from ASDA (Wal-Mart owns this chain).

Finally it was time to bid goodbye and we hailed a taxi to the airport. Ajith was kind enough to accompany me to the airport and how much ever I pull his leg and say he was a terrible guide I don’t think I would have seen as much of London without him.

Ajith, I am revising your scores – 4.5 out of 5!

Again I started off late but there was not much hitch in the check-in. Only before going through security the Immigration officer sent me back to the BA counter, but the dude did something and I was allowed through.

My impressions of this trip: I was so glad I did this. Visiting my cousin and seeing the most of South Wales and South East England was definitely worth it. UK deserves more than one visit as it will keep calling you back for more. But for now I have other options to explore.

Next up: Canada.

People tell me that seeing 501 cities in my lifetime is not going to happen. Right now I am only at 27.

I say: Isn’t that what dreams are about. If a dream was possible, I don’t think it would be a dream.

As the Boss (Bruce Springsteen) would say:

Out here the Nights are long…
The Days are lonely…

I think of you and…
I’m working on a Dream
I ‘m working on a Dream

Never quote Springstein again or I shall pummel you!
