I'm leaving London today. And this time I'm leaving for good.
For the first time in 3 years, I sit in the lounge at Heathrow Airport waiting for my flight, typing the last blog entry that I will ever type in the UK for quite a while.One day many years from now, people are going to ask me what is it that I did on the last day, the last time I was in London.
I'm going to pretend to 'try to remember', then I'm going to tell them the truth.
That on the last day that I was in London, I was at the Four Seasons Restaurant at Bayswater.
Yes, the little restaurant at Bayswater that had recently put up the little cute window sticker to tell people that it is on Google Maps.
So there I was on Friday 8th of September, standing in front of the Four Seasons, saying a last goodbye to all the roast duck that made life so good for me.
I said goodbye to the waiters at the restaurant that I managed to make friends with over the past 3 years that I've been in London.
One of them shook my hand and made me promise me to go back there again when I make it big some day.
I smiled at him, told him that I hope that would really come true and I walked out the door for the last time.
So here I am, back in the lounge at Heathrow Airport.In a short while I will hear the woman over the speaker calling for me to board my flight.
Then I would have one last chance... to say goodbye to London.
Goodbye London... it has been a good 3 years.
PS: Sorry guys.. couldn't tarpau any duck for you.. they wouldn't let me bring it through the security check. I think they're afraid I'll use the ducks to hijack the plane which is a valid concern.
