Landed in the UK

Hi all,

Feel like I flew for about three weeks, and only slept about an hour on the plane, but I got there in the end. Watched a bunch of movies during the flights which made the journey pass much more quickly

* adjustment bureau was great
* source code was well done too
* lifeless was really good
* Battle LA was dumb as a post but at least it moved things along at a good pace
* Hanna was good
* drive angry was unwatchably bad...remember when Nic Cage made good movies??
* Paul was silly but funny
* Sucker Punch was bizarre but surprisingly entertaining
* Unknown was quite good
* rio was quite fun
* Kung Fu panda 2 was dumb but funny
* also saw some Sparticus, which was impressive for its ability to cram in so much violence plus T&A into every episode

Since arriving Ive done a bunch of tube travel and visited Kew Gardens. Managed to avoid jet lag so far. Going to explore London this week and the surrounding areas after. Really like London so far, quite green and attractive so far, plus the food has been quite good and good value too even after adjusting for the exchange rate...

My first attempt at a digital pic... a playground for more brave experimentation prior to taking up an actual brush. As you'll see I am still a total rookie with photoshop and so the near island looks horrible, but I'm pretty happy with the sky and more distant stuff at this stage.
