10:50 PM
I am relaxing in the comforts of the KWEST Hotel in London. It's a swanky place off the Shepherds Bush stop on the LONDON UNDERGROUND. From what I've heard , this is where bands, models, etc. stay, so that answers why the mass amounts of tall women are milling about.

I didn't fall asleep until 5 AM and was up a little bit before 10 AM. Uggghhh... but it worked out. I saw Derek up and he, along with myself, Brad, and Josh took the Underground to CAMDEN and went shopping. It was good to get out and walk about. I feel healthy. Tired, but healthy. We leave at 2 AM, so I'm just soaking up the comfort of this hotel room for the next 3 hours. We were to play PARIS tomorrow, but the show was cancelled due to civil unrest as the city is under curfew. That's too bad. I haven't played in Paris since 2001. So, it's another day off tomorrow. We're going to AMSTERDAM, a place I've never been. Hopefully I can get to sleep at a decent time and enjoy the day.

The good news for me is that I get my own bed for the next 5 nights. WOOHOO!! You have no idea how important this is to me. What else?? I can't think straight. Ummm...yesterday was the last show in Birmingham. Good show, but again I couldn't sell my own merchandise which is no fun. I like to be able to talk to the show goers. I did muster up the energy to walk around Birmingham. Another attempt at buying shoes was unsuccesful. I decided on this one pair, but I thought they were on sale and they weren't, so I just said.. "OH!! That's too much.. Sorry.."

Also, it was the last day of catering. We are on our own from now own. Which is actually a blessing as I've eaten non-stop the last 2 weeks. But I guess this is my final farewell to the UK. Again, thank you for being amazing and kind and lovely and blah blah blah blah blah..... Til' next time.

Peace, mike park
