The things I remember most about America and Canada (to be precise, Toronto and Boston) are rain. Rain and wind. Rain, wind, Sandy, snow, and delays at airports. Honestly, it’s a good thing that when I go to an airport I pack my shoulder-bag with at least four books, a notebook, my DS, my new Kindle, and possibly a couple of magazines . . .

No, not really. What I do remember are my friends. And the book shops. And the Royal Ontario Museum. And the craft shops. And the shopping with friends. And the introducing one friend to Sherlock, and to Offenbach’s La Belle Helene, and oh dear god excuse me while I go and bang my head against the wall until I can get “Alors, pars, pars pour Cythera!” out of it.
Also, I should not be allowed into a book shop or craft shop together with
