I love the Eurostar. Just 2 hours from Paris and you can be in a whole other world. And in that world live my dear friends Rebecca and Tom, whom I hadn't seen since Burning Man last year. When I called them a week ago to announce my visit, they planned a trip to their friend Simon's house in the Lake District in Northern England.  I was so excited at the news, and it's not that I don't like London, it's just exciting to go somewhere new rather than the same tired old clubs...

It took only 2h45 to get there from London.  I wish we had a better train system in the states. It makes traveling so much easier, and I find it so much more romantic.

As EVERYONE pointed out on the trip, the weather was absolutely beautiful. Apparently it rains 300 days a year here, quite the opposite from the 300 days of sunshine I'm used to in LA. Tom made sure to tell me that Sunday it was 21°C in Windemere and it was 24°C in LA that very same day.
