The Change from Tourist to Resident

Space InvaderWe've been here four months now, and London is starting to feel more like home than like a place we're visiting. I think this becomes true of any place you move: things begin to get more familiar, and once you see the traditional touristy things to see, you start looking for the cool places you can call your own. Last night we met up with some people from work and ate at an Argentinian steakhouse in the middle of South London; it was a great time, and it was one of the first places I've been that hasn't either been immediately around my flat, or something either Lonely Planet or the Rough Guide recommended. It's that time when we're discovering places we'll be that are off the path a little and are the ones we'd recommend to newbies.

It's a fun time.
