3:30 PM: We have mobile service again. I'm about to head into Central London (on foot) to meet him, svanzoest and jade_van_zoest who are in town only for the next day. You can all yell at me for that later.
me: ooh!

Aftermath. We're home.

I walked into Central London, met Marco, Jade and Sander, ate a meal and walked home again. We're staying put now.

I took some pictures on my walk. It was hard to stop my hands from shaking. They're not beautiful and they're not Photoshopped except to resize.
