Open whenever Robert Langdon is in town
Lawrence Welk Merrill Sisters from SNL until I made everyone lay down in the grass to take a nap, though I think I was the only person to actually sleep. Because I'm the old man here. Ally freaked out from ants, Emily never actually laid down, Kaitlyn didn't appreciate my joke about snakes, and Topher snuck off around about the time I hit REM. But that was all fine; maybe the joy of Hampstead is exploring it on your own. That was my first introduction, and should be everyone's.
Late tonight I stopped at a hotel downtown to say hello to my jet-lagged friend Kevin Rahm, who is here for a few days. We'll be hanging out tomorrow, if I can keep him awake (caffeine pills.) It's great to see him. And I walked to the Westminster tube station just as Big Ben was ringing midnight. It's been a while since I've been there for that.
And further still at an unearthly height,
A luminary clock against the sky,
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night.
