Paul Theroux

It's jolly difficult to believe that last night the Board at the Neilson Hays Library were welcoming Paul Theroux and this morning I'm sitting in a little hotel room in overcast London.

We had a wonderful night. It was a great coup to get him to come and talk and members and non members alike turned out in their droves to come and listen.
He was wonderful, funny, charming, and generous. I'm a bit fuzzy headed to give you a report so I'm just going to leave you with some pictures. (Yes, that's me meeting Paul Theroux!)

I am soooooo envious... glad you had such a good time, and that you made it to London safely.

Well look at you! You're really packing it in whilst you're here, aren't you? Next photo you and Lenny Henry?

Enjoy the trip in the UK. I'm just back to Dubai now and can relate to fuzzy heads.

I have given you a blog award :-)
