Leicester Square, London
Here's the last of three posts I mean to write about recent events.

Flame and I are in London! We didn't mean to be-- we should have been in Marseille, France, by now. But such is the price of weather in Philly.

After visiting a half dozen half-price ticket booths near Leicester Square (Leicester Square half-price ticket booth, The half-price ticket booth, The official half-price ticket booth, and The half-official Leicester-price booth, among them), we got some full-price tickets to see Wicked, the Mists of Avalon of Oz.

In celebration Johanna ducked into a steakhouse for a bathroom. I started handing out Travelers Network flyers on the busy Leicester way, which is populated more with flyer-hander-outers than not.

A young man and woman approached. "Wahnt one?", the woman asked, holding out a yellow leaflet.

"Sure, want to trade?" I offered her a flyer.

"No, its for a show, for tonight," the guy said.

"I've already got plans, but I'll take one if you'll take one," I explained.

"Waht? Ewe cahnt be seerias."

"It's a social network for travelers. Here, look."

"Oh! I'm trahvelling next month!" To Argentina and Brazil-- and Iguazu falls-- it turned out. We chatted and she took a flyer, and I got away paper-free.

My Leicester square experience was discovering at 3:15 on a Sunday that all Sunday performances were at 3.

Marseille! Ironically, my favorite Marselhan band is playing in, yes, Saõ Paulo this month. If you're in Marselha in July, look up Lo Cor de la Plana. This is that medieval/rave band. You won't regret it. Bring friends. Wear dancing shoes.

(Ha! Gotcha! Thought you'd escape without a concert flier did you? ;)
