Stars and showers

It’s been a busy past few days. I finished some work, and went to London to apply for a new passport. I love going to London. I love all the small things that make it a little like, well, like a movie set. The Big Ben. The London Eye. Red telephone boxes, black cabs, doormen in front of the fancy hotels. The embassy is in Knightsbridge, where the street are full of Aston Martins, and if you are lucky, you can see an urban fox lurking around. If you’re less lucky, it will rain on you.

The Leonids meteor shower will peak tonight. NASA has a calculator to tell you when it is the best to see it: Meteor Shower Flux Estimator. The best place is always somewhere else, this time in South America…
