London Calling

And we are up to nine

Yes, nine years have passed since that day there.

No British passport, at least for now.
But if I had been told that I would be working for the same company for four years 1 and that my sweetheart would be working for a television network, I would not have believed it.

The fifth circle of Hell

Yesterday was the anniversary of our arrival in London: six years have passed. Compared to last year, it has not changed so much, apart from the pandemic.

London Calling

The dice are cast: right now, we are at the airport waiting for the departure of our one-way flight to London. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, and much has been done at the last minute. But we are leaving, and that is what counts. Our thoughts turn to what we leave behind: our beautiful little house, our friends,...
