    I flew in on Thursday before the show - many thanks to Nadeem / @Ouddict for meeting me at the station to help me get back to my hotel!

    Thursday was an easy day spent with Nadeem and Sproaty. Just kinda getting our bearings in Shoreditch.

    On Friday...the sightseeing began with @Sproaty and Swiss Mike!

    Sproaty and I met Mike at Harrods. First thing Mike says to me, “you must be JK...you’re the tallest guy I’ve seen in London” :Roflmao:

    Meeting up at Harrods

    We had folks come from more than just London...

    Seattle, Switzerland, France, Austria, Romania, Whales and other parts of England were all represented! Not to mention all of our London community hailing from various parts of the Middle East and Asia! Was quite an impressive international gathering :) :)

    For those that don’t know Abdul Ghani...was nice to finally meet in person!

    Thankfully...we took a break for lunch. Everyone forgot to eat on Saturday. Was a cool outdoor market just down the street!
