Nombreuse en citoyens, superbe en bâtiments;
Et j'en crois merveilleux les divertissements.
Ils ont en ce pays de quoi se contenter.

There is really only one phone number for me these days, namely my UK mobile number. This works even if I am travelling to somewhere else in Europe: +44.789.690.5019
I keep a USA mobile number which I use on trips to North America, although I have none planned at the moment:
My French mobile number no longer works.

I lived in Paris in 2009, and still spend a lot of time there.
Here's a list of some of the things I've been to see, many of them in Paris:
in 2009, in 2010,
in 2011, in 2014.
I go to the opera frequently.
If you don't yet realize that you like opera, check out my list of operas you will like.
I ran the Bristol Half Marathon in 2010, 2011 and 2012, and the Cardiff Half Marathon in 2012. My time gets slightly better each time; my latest time is 1:57:24.
I try to go for a long run once a week.
I've mapped some of my longer runs using MapMyRun.com; here are some from 2010:
S 7/17 That's the way they do it
S 7/24 My usual run to Pill
F 7/30 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Th 8/05 Strawberry Fields
You can also see where I went running in 2009.
I have been posting photos on facebook. Here are the public links, so that even without a facebook account(!?!) you can see
my Paris neighbourhood in winter,
my Paris neighbourhood in spring, some
displays and some
student murals at the Ecole Polytechnique, and
my friend Adam Charlesworth standing beside a famous tower.
I am the fourth person to translate George Perec's novel La Disparition into English. As my translation isn't published, I can't link to it here, although I may add a short extract later. In the meantime, here are some rather silly
translations of pop songs I did for fun.
