Goodbye London

I'm currently sitting on the Heathrow Express (or at least I was when I wrote this on August 21st) enjoying the free wifi en route to Heathrow to catch my flight to Greece.  I'm surprised that I'm really not that sad about leaving--I expected it to be harder to leave the place that I've called home for the past 6 weeks.  I'm going to miss the beautiful parks, the odd peacefulness of the tube, being able to walk to anywhere in the city (if you have enough time and the proper footwear), and definitely the wonderful people that I met. London's high prices, grey skies, and meh food, however, I will be content to live without.

I spent the last two days running around the city knocking the last few items off of my list.  Yesterday involved a walk through Hyde Park (not new, but one of my London favourites), brunch at the Proms (a free show by a 20yr old violinist who played jazz with a string bass, acoustic guitar, and an electric acoustic.  heaven.)
Abbey Road, 
and Camden Market.  Today's last-day-in-London adventures will be better documented in a later post.

On tap for tonight is a redeye flight from Heathrow to Athens, and then a ferry to the island on which I'll be living for the next two weeks or so.  

Greece's sunshine and cuisine sound heavenly.
