Thank goodness, I got my visa today! Hassle-free, for a change. Yippee!
We spent our last day walking around Amsterdam in the rain, stopping for lunch at the Esprit Cafe in Spui (which would never work in Sydney but is quite chic and bustling here and serves very nice sandwiches). More packing, and now we are just about ready.
Tomorrow, we take the ferry to London (excess luggage and all), and will spend the first two weeks in an apartment studio near the British Museum. There will be lots of running around, organising everything and job and flat hunting, but I will try and update as much as I can.
Like Gainsbourg et son Gainsborough, je pris le ferry boat, pour rejoindre La Tamise et Chelsea...
I am really looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to jumping right into London life, grabbing this opportunity with both hands.
