Different London. Different world.

Not like home
London, KY
December 2014
The scene: We were midway through the first day of a very long drive away toward a warmer place than the one we had left before dawn. The peculiarities of time, distance and speed resulted in us getting hungry right around a rather familiar-sounding place. Like our hometown, it's also called London. Unlike our hometown, it's in Kentucky.

One of the joys of driving is you get to appreciate the differences in culture as you hopscotch from one place to another. And in this old, forgotten strip mall with the giant sign over the leather goods store, we were reminded of just how different this particular London was from the one back home in Ontario.

Note to self: Drive more. Shoot more. Write more.
