I have been thoroughly enjoying this look at London life from centuries ago. It is so interesting to read the annotations and I learn so much. Funny how many of them are 20ish years old, but all new to me.

I had never heard of Pepys until a few days ago, after falling down a rabbit hole of the year Christmas was cancelled. I came upon a diary entry he made and then discovered the existence of this diary. What a great resource and I love the annotations and background! So it seems like a great time to began at the beginning of this new year and start this new journey!
And hello William, from a fellow Clevelander!
