brighton and world cup

in lovely brighton - visiting a variety of places and people from HIV clinic to TB charity to psychologist who researches organ donation. Tomorrow to London for the afternoon for a conference on ethics issues for the caribbean community with a session on organ donation and the clinic ethics committee meeting for the great ormond street hospital.

Staying with an extremely kind family here and just got the english teenagers' guide to the footie game - sweden versus england. who the footballers are dating etc. a draw. Hardly need to watch the game - could just listen to the shouting walking around outside.
