Off today with Yana for a Grand Tour of Europe. Now that we have decided to potentially move to Australia, it's time that she discovered some of Europe, though at the age of 11 it's clear that she will only have a limited capacity to appreciate it.

We had intended to go across by boat, but the weather was not good, and we ended up going through the Channel Tunnel:

From there we drove to Meldreth, where my sister lives.

Into London today by train, and visited the Tower of London, then shopping in the West End, notably at Foyles, where an encyclopaedia salesman tried to sell us a set of Encyclopædia Britannica. I was not convinced.

Heard the news on the radio this morning: 邓小平 (Deng Xiaoping) is dead. Within an hour I was on my way to the airport, where for the first time in Frankfurt I had a reasonable departure lounge. Then off on the overnight flight to Beijing.

Pickup in Beijing was strange. This was my first visit to China, and it was only marginally what I expected it to be.
