With certain reservations, I went into the countryside. It was Chris's wedding, and a wonderful weekend, but the countryside is... y'know, kinda muddy and full of animals. Then again it's also very, very beautiful and I was really lucky to see some of the most perfect rolling English hills that I've ever seen.
I got a little muddy, but I didn't get attacked by any of the dogs, cows or pheasants (and man, there were a lot of those) that surrounded us. And I got to see stars! Real, untainted-by-urban-glow stars!
And, of course, congratulations to Nicky and Chris. It was a wonderful shindig.
