I’m back in Israel. I think I caught a cold from being stuffed into a middle–of-the-row economy class seat on a long overnight flight.

It’s a pity that I was to tired to take many photos because that evening had the best light of all the nights I was there. The photo above was taken just beside the Hungerford railway bridge near Waterloo Station.
