…and late at night…

…to Gatwick to fly to Rome, where I am visiting friends and also doing some work…

The Bloc Hotel at Gatwick is the strangest place in which I have ever stayed…each room a mall soundproofed compartment, lacking windows and simply having a bed, and shower room, the latter carefully designed so that the water simply drains away across the whole floor. The only other thing evidently regarded as essential: a vast TV, somehow sinister in his hugeness, which I ignored. And  there was wifi. What more does one need?  The airport was all happening a few yards away from where I showered and slept. Up early and breakfasting in the departure lounge. All much more efficient than travelling in from some hotel on the airport’s outskirts…but a strange and v. 21st-century experience.
