Finally finished uploading my London-Australia photos.

(The new ones start here.)

This afternoon I have mostly been putting things into boxes, which is a traumatic process. The boxes (two teachests & Cepheus-the-bike) go tomorrow morning. I have the FEAR that I will end up with random extra bags to carry onto the boat when I realise on Sunday that I forgot to pack $important_thing (which will doubtless also be *heavy*).

Test packing of the rucksack reveals a) things fit!, and b) luggage is about 50% books & other paper, & 50% clothes. I may end up either abandoning, or posting home, books at San Francisco[0].

[0] The last time I was in San Francisco was when I was 21 and spent the Easter vac driving round the SW of the States (bless Oxford & its 6 wk vacations, even if the 8 wk terms are actually designed to generate insanity and overwork). As I didn't have to *carry* anything anywhere, due to having a car, I ended up buying enough books that I had to buy a bag to carry them home in. And then I forgot that I also had a bottle of vodka in the bag, which obviously broke on its way through baggage handling. Thus all my Arnistead Maupin books are slightly crinkled and vodka-ish.
