Managed to find a cab quickly in Long Lane so was home by 12.30. It was interesting meeting people from different countries and hearing their impressions of London, and of Southwark. It seems that our humour does not always travel: Lisa did not enjoy 'Little Britain' or 'The Green Room', favourites in UK. She told us about a short movie which many Germans and some Swiss people watch on DVD before they go out on New Year's Eve. It is called 'Dinner for One' and is all about some batty old lady and her butler. Seems it is a great favourite. I may try to see this to see if us Brits find it funny. Madeleine always refuses to go out on New Year's Eve, so maybe I shall send her a copy, and she can watch in solitary splendour.
