I spent a few days in London last week & had a blast there. The city is full of history which our own private guide showed us when we went on the Charles Dickens tour throughout central London’s northend. He manuevered us expertly out of a crowded area to a small one where we learned just how much London has been developed. It rained which was no surprise.
The other highlight was seeing Picasso 1932 at the Tate Modern & walking over the London Bridge. We rode the tube & spent an afternoon in Liberty where we had afternoon tea at Arthurs. Carrot cake that we saved for last was uneatable, it tasted of a combination of flour & baking soda. Disappointed.
We ate pho & went to a curry house with a very interesting staff. Took a short trip around Scotland at Cadenhead & checked out the Kew Royal Gardens where we got muddy but happy looking at all the Spring flowers. London was fun, but the old architecture that didn’t burn in the great fire was fun to see. We checked out Rules London’s oldest restaurant.
The b&b we stayed in was outside of central London’s circle 1 we where in circle 3 & it was quiet after the pub closed downstairs. I enjoyed eating a full British & thoroughly enjoyed the toast & tomatoes. The highlight of the trip was of course spending time with my bestfriend who referred to me as old when the clock struck 11pm….i am Old. Stay tuned for the release of my poetry book coming out soon.
