Expat Xmas

This was my second Christmas since leaving New Zealand. England is currently going through the coldest Winter for decades, which is exactly what they said last year as well. Actually, I think the weather forecaster was wearing last year's shirt. Are they just re-running old weather reports?

A week before Christmas, I didn't really have any plans. Some friends in London had very kindly invited me for Christmas, but at the last minute I decided to get myself a nice Thai meal. I know this place that does great Thai food south of Cambridge. It's not on the Cambridge bus route so it takes a bit of effort getting there.

Actually, the commute was horrendous.

Punting down the Cam. Don't fool yourself, it's freezing cold. Just for the record, the hat was only a rental.

This is the least comfortable taxi I've ever been in. It's slow and the seat is all lumpy.

(That's why I never post photos of myself. How is it possible for me to sit on a frickin' elephant and still look tubby?)

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I'm going to write to the taxi company.

Woah, hold it. This is the place:

Yes, it's Thailand. Durr.
