Sort of a grey morning in Vauxhall, the area on the Thames River's south bank where I'm staying. The main selling point of this hotel is that it's walking distance from the office complex where I'm taking a training course; other than that, it doesn't have much to recommend it, except that it's a short Tube ride (10-15 minutes tops) to central London.
This is almost exactly like going to New York City but getting a hotel room in Jersey City across the river... right down to the light industrial/residential rehab building mix and the Portuguese restaurants in the neighborhood.
Putting in some long hours at work, but we're still managing to have a bit of fun. Looking forward to seeing some old friends tonight.
