A new year to see new things, go to new places, and meet new people… in face… My first real life bubbler encounter!

Happy New Year Everyone! School is finally OVER! And now I’m in London doing whatever sightseeing I can before I start my new internship. As some of you may remember, I arrived here on the 18th, but I still had a school assignment to complete over the holidays (so much for my Christmas…). But now time has freed up again. I’ve missed this community so much! I have been far less active since I started school again in September; I still came on once in a while but I was much more active before as I was an RB addict ;) Now I am catching up again. But not only will I be catching with bubblers online, but in reality too …

On New Year’s eve I met up with Gaurav who is now officially the first RB member I’ve met face to face (we’ve know each on the bubbler since March 2008). Meeting someone face to face after only knowing them for a long time online is rather interesting; I think it is wonderful how this art community brings people together. So I got to learn other things about Gaurav aside from his photography; such as his home-cooking (it was the first time for me to have home-cooked Indian food and it was good!), and he got to learn that I suck at virtual tennis :P.

We saw the New Year’s fireworks at the London Eye, and it was great. It is nice meeting face to face; especially since both of us have been too busy these past few months to be on the bubble (although my time is now freeing up); perhaps I’ll meet up with more of my favourite UK bubblers while I’m here as I catch up on RB again; that’s my New Year’s Resolution this year :)

And here is a preview of the fireworks; wasn’t easy getting pictures since the area was crowded and I don’t use a tripod.
