I went down to Brighton yesterday - it was my first visit there after fourteen years. My sister studied in Britain and I spent some time there in 1990, and there were bits and pieces there which I could recall.
Anyhow, it was a beautiful city, and luckily, although the forecast was "partially cloudy", it choose to be cloudy only during our journey to and from Brighton! There were lots of people enjoying the summer sun!
I also found an excellent second hand and antiquarian book store, and bought "Jerusalem" by Michel Join-Lambert. It is a first edition, sent to the original owner for review (the invitation card is enclosed), published in 1958. There was another book, RH Bruce Lockhart's "Return to Malaya", about the return of a European who previously spent some years in his uncle's plantation in Malaya (and got into a scandal with a princess, it appears to be!). This time he journeyed in Malaya and some parts of Indonesia (Dutch East Indies then).
