No, I haven't dropped off the planet...

In fact I have been very busy moving from Brussels to London, closing bank accounts, opening bank accounts, getting a British SIM card for my mobile phone, frantically looking for a place to live (while crashing at a friend's house) and starting my new job (yesterday was my first day).
At the moment the results are quite pleasing. I now live right behind Russell Square, where the British Museum is, which is a really cool area (Bloomsbury), and the people at work are interesting, very nice and engaging. And, though I am in the "ultra-liberal" UK, I do have six weeks of paid holiday... Sorry, I just had to tell you that. Plus, quite ironically, my commute here is about half as long as what I was used to in Brussels (which is about seven times smaller than London). Well, I'm certainly not complaining about that...
However I do feel very bad about not blogging in such a long time, and I plan on resuming as soon as possible. I think it will be hard to post from work, at least initially, but I seem to be able to pick up several excellent (though unfortunately not completely reliable) wireless networks from home. In the next weeks I'll see if I can get away with those; otherwise I'll get my own connection.

Perhaps I have my areas-of-London mixed up, but I think there's a nice Italian restaurant near you, called... hmmm... Pierino's, or something? Maybe?

Thanks for the tip, I'll see if I can find it. I hope it's not too pricey... :-)
