Went to British Library yesterday. Amazing. Love the old books. Also picked up an old copy of Milton's Paradise Lost (printed in 1801). Inside the old book there are newspaper clippings from some literary critic about the greatness of Milton.

A Susan Sontag Reader
Everything is very expensive in London. Especially compared to Poland. So can't go nuts with books. Plus can't find a good used bookshop for good poetry like in Chapel Hill or St. Marks in New York.
Tonight we might go to an indie club. Tomorrow we are going to the club Ministry of Sound. Next Tuesday we might see And You Will Know Us by the trail of Dead. Or something like that. I think they are like Sonic Youth or something.
It feels great to be an English speaking country again. Eating Prawn Cocktail crisps.
Ate some great Indian, Lebanese, Chinese, and especially Spanish. I love the Spanish food. A few little plates at a time of great seafood.
I am not looking forward to returning to Poland. But ah well. I really needed this. I feel refreshed again. I can do Poland.
Tate Modern tomorrow for the Dali and surrealism exhibition.
