It has been a surprise that I got to go to
in this trip. An in-and-out journey. Arrived at the passport check gate around 10AM and the lady asked about the duration of my stay. “Six hours” I responded. She was surprised and then invited me to go back for a longer stay. Nice of her. Dublin
It has been a very busy journey indeed. I got to go to Croydon from
Oxford, then from London took a train to Hull, then rode back to Heathrow, then flew to Dublin, and tonight shall ride to . Staying in different hotels in different towns and cities every night. I must say I think it has been a tiring but very fruitful visit. Cardiff
I really like the British people. They are so proper, and they can be very nice. They seem actually pretty direct to me, albeit polite.
People in North are particularly well-know for being nice. I was "love" and "my love" and "sweetheart" to whomever I asked a question of, like where I could grab some napkins at the hospital cafeteria.
I cannot wait to go back home and hug my A. I got to talk to M before boarding the plane and his sleepy voice sounded so sweet to me. But I doubt I can talk to A today, he was still asleep when M called, I am in a plane now with no reception, and by the time we land I suppose he will be at school.
At the same time I so wish I could go to
. I am only 6 hours away. It is Ramadan and I have not been with my family for this month for more than a decade now. Also other reasons really entice me to go pay them all a visit. Even for two days. But I doubt possible. The ticket price as I checked last night is horrendous. Iran
