London the World City, Except at Christmas

You've got to pity tourists who thought Christmas in London would be a good idea. I've just done a zip around the major museum/gallery websites and they are all closed 24-26 December, there's no public transport at all on Christmas Day - really folks, the world hasn't stopped, it just seems like it.

If I can start early enough in the morning it seems one of the few things to do tomorrow is walk down to Hyde Park for the Serpentine Swimming Club annual race. Although it is so ridiculously warm for this time of year, it won't have quite the usual thrill of danger.

No, you're right, I don't really do Christmas - but merry Saturnalia to all!

Well, maybe not London, but I'd dearly love a Christmas in Ringmer right about now, so Robin could be with his Dad and see his siblings...

Sorry about that, but in London there must be large numbers of people who don't do Christmas (yes I'm among them, and I'm working tomorrow), who find themselves unable to do the things they'd like to do. The lack of public transport is particularly ridiculous, since it means people can't get around, for Christmas or non-Christmas, reasons.
