Leeds

Grabbed a Subway for later. Chicken tikka, which US stores don't offer. But the only cheeses they offer are American and cheddar, and they were out of cheddar. They don't have oil and vinegar.

I'm staying in what I infer is an abbey turned into hotel/convention center. It's on Headingley Lane, much like 10th street Bton: a two lane road passing through a major university and thus bearing far too much traffic. Actually it might have had more lanes ones, but there's pedestrian refuges and bike lanes.

It's 46 F at the moment. I'm not really equipped for this. I packed thinking it'd be warmer later. I walked to this Thai restaurant in three layers, jumper over long sleeved shirt over T-shirt... It occurs to me that I didn't think this through. Plan was to travel, then settle in Boston, but unless I go so far as to winter over in South America, it'll be cold in Boston. I have perfectly fine jackets and coats already... in boxes in Bloomington.

Can you get someone to mail you a box or two?

Cost of that would probably be comparable to getting a cheap jacket. And someone with access to my storage unit would probably have no idea what box to get or which box to open to get my jackets, I didn't label for this.

Get a souvenir layer
When I was traveling in South America I had a similar problem, but I ended up with a warm wooly sweater from Peru that I still like to wear.

The weather here in Chile, BTW, is starting to get nicer again. We're having lows in the 50s and highs in the 60s, usually with sunny afternoons and overcast mornings. We are having a desert florido this year to the north of us, which should persist for another month or two.

Re: Get a souvenir layer
I still have the hat -- and with me -- I bought when I visited. Sometimes one needs an Indiana Jones quasi-fedora, sometimes one needs a straw hat, and sometimes one needs an ugly but crushable floppy hat that can travel lightly in the bag. Especially if it has a chinstrap.

Nice!
