I started to sense the season in Paris and in the markets in towns along our tour. In London I also got to wander through the festive Southbank market and Portobello Road in full Christmas force. I loved the London streets in full holiday spirit, and part of me is sad to miss the different experience abroad. I'll be back soon though, and in the meantime am happy to have time with friends and family here. I will also likely take another hiatus from these letters, since I'm back with my main audience!
