I am incredibly excited for him to be able to go home and see friends and family-and experience the sense of familiar that he will surely feel by being back in London.
I wonder if he's truly prepared however, for what has changed-both in London, and him. I recall that there was a tipping point for me that made me feel less familiar with the US and more familiar with London-almost a comfort level. I don't know if this will be the trip for Simon-it is just the first year after all, but it has been a year, so he's probably quite settled in the 'American-ness' of his life already.
This should be interesting.
