Beginning the journey all over again
July 30, 2012
The process of catching up goes on. My feet are healed, my clothes are laundered, and I’m starting to resemble a half-way respectable citizen once more. Soon the real hard work will begin, the gathering of notes and thoughts and starting work on the actual book – which, I realise, basically means beginning the journey all over again, retracing my own steps in my mind as I retraced Patrick Leigh Fermor’s — but for now I’m just delighted to be in this marvellous city.
