Writing from memory

I love the rapport between BBC World Editor John Simpson and his sub-editors at British Airways' High Life magazine. February's contribution from the great man is headed thus:

John Simpson: letter from San Diego
What the world’s most famous correspondent gets up to off duty.
This month he heads to San Diego

The opening sentence ?

Sadly, I’m not actually writing this from San Diego. In fact I haven’t set foot in the place for – let me think – more than 40 years now.
