Back in 1660 Pepys has just landed in Den Haag in the Netherlands. Knowing nothing about the diaries before I started the project, it’s been interesting to read the ship’s slow journey down the Thames and over to the Continent, and now Pepys’ experience of a foreign country. A nice change from the familiar streets of London. The diary’s also currently full of news about the reinstatement of the monarchy in the shape of King Charles II.
