Leaving London for Nice

Today I started the day with a walk in Brompton cemetery, situated only  a hundred yards from my hotel. It is one of those peaceful Victorian cemeteries that have a distinctive own charm. The most famous person buried at Brompton is Emmeline Pankhurst, the suffragette leader.

I somehow expected that it would be easy to find her grave, since I thought more people would have brought flowers there than to the surrounding graves. Well, I was wrong. Only a few flowers, doesn’t seem to be many visiting her resting place.

Now I’m sitting at Heathrow waiting for a flight to Nice. It’s going to be great to change to a different language, culture and climate. Also waiting to see my friends from the trip to Liverpool, who have been driving through France down to the Cote d’Azur.

I bought new cycling gear in London, I really hope that there comes good possibilities to rent a bike.

Au revoir, London. Nice, here I come!
