Journal Entry:
Woke up and just felt like I needed to get out of London. It was like all of a sudden London wasn't a cool exotic place anymore, it was just a big, crowded city.

Spent the morning buying airplane tickets. One for Amsterdam tonight, and one from Barcelona to Oslo, where I plan on being for New Years.

Spent the afternoon shopping on Oxford Street and getting caught up on my email and journal.

Flew into Amsterdam, caught a train into Amsterdam proper, took a tram from the train station and met my friend Rob at the tram stop. Rob, Natsuko (Rob's wife), and I spent a couple hours talking (mostly Rob and I exchanging gossip), then off to bed. It was the most relaxing evening I've had in a long time.
