London, part 1: Back to School.

Autumn in London isn't a real autumn in the way it is in the mountain west, but surely it's an adequate replacement for whatever season it is in LA right now. Plus, fall = school's back in. 

I'm starting off at London School of Economics this week and I'll be using this space to write a little about my time abroad and share some photos and thoughts of my new city, new school and other experiences of note. 

It's been a week since we (mom and I) landed. She flew home yesterday after days of errands, administrative headaches, lots of walking and more than a few glasses of wine at London lunch counters and the couches of the Airbnb in Notting Hill while whichever game show happened to be on arrested our attention.
