With my boss (then) and the driver(centre) of the limo
The thing about this city is that it's so old and such a drag ! BUT- its got character ! -- and I love it. Walk down the streets and the grey buildins surround you. The wet, the grey sky in winter.
In Oxford Street with collegues-me looking tired.
Anyway we soon settled in a hotlel near Oxford Street. All my collegues decide to leave all the arrangements to me as I was familiar with the place. So the first thing I did was to rent a Merc Limo to take us round. We visited University East London, Westminster University and the Middlesex University. Of all I thought Middlesex an interesting visit with its many campuses. The one we visited was actually a renovated warehouse or something. But the bright daring colours that they used would make you thing its an Art and Design Institution when its actually an Engineering Faculty !

Anyway after all our visits I went separate way from my my collegues. They were going to have a day or two free, but for me, I am officially on leave for a week. So that evening, packed my bags say my goodbyes to companions of a few weeks, and make my way to Kings Cross Station to Leceister to my sister's place, spend a night there and then a long train ride to Dundee to see my son. ( Hmmmmm , from here on, I'll be using my own money---not the company's---kind of sad---heheheh)
My son's block of apartment
In Dundee, it was my first visit to see my son . Although he had to attend his daily lectures , I always manage to do thing on my own.
Like father like son--he started his hobby as a hi-fi enthusiast. The above pjoto was sent to me by him, and this time I got to see it --for real
what was written on the back of the photo he had sent me ..
After a near one week in Dundee, I make my way back south to begin my long journey back home and back to reality.(Athough, two months later , I would be back here with my family enjoyng a winter holidays with my son again!).
So thats it...
