Happy New Year, from the oldish country

This is just a little hello to say that we’ve been over here in England since Thursday, visiting some friends, hanging out in Bath and Oxford, seeing things that range from sorta-old stuff (clothes from 1800 and onwards at the Fashion Museum here in Bath, chapels in various colleges at Oxford) to really-old stuff (like the antiquities at the British Museum), and, in a day or two, to very new stuff (we decided to make the trip scarcely a month ago because we didn’t want to miss the Richter retrospective and the Tacita Dean installation at the Tate Modern).

Otherwise, we are just filling up on crumpets and chocolate-coated biscuits and reading books and enjoying a few days away before the semester begins next week. Jolly good.
