I came across this article on Sky News today. It commemorates the hottest July Day ever in Britain. We were there that week on our honeymoon. It was brutal.
That Wednesday was the day we discovered that, mercifully, the British Library is air conditioned, unlike almost all of London. We spent over two hours there looking at very old books and not sweating.
It’s nice to have such ready access to news stories from a very special time. Despite the heat, it was pretty much the best trip I’ve ever taken. And now that it’s been almost a year since we were on our honeymoon, it’s even more fun to be able to look back and see what it was like to be there then.
