On this second sunny day in row (!) I met my friend Chris for some American food and then a drink at Warwick Avenue, near Little Venice.
Fun fact: this American-style diner we went to sold boxes of cereal (Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Cap’n Crunch) for £12.50. That’s about $17. For one box.
Fun fact #2: I never learn my lesson that sun in England does not mean you can go out of the house without a jacket. Especially not in a little summer dress with flip flops.
I went for a rosé, which I haven’t had in … years? It was good!
Chris had his usual cider, which I like as well but I can never consume that much liquid so I never get it. Maybe if they made cider into shots I’d have at it.
With me being a lightweight, I couldn’t handle another glass of wine at 3 in the afternoon, so we went for a walk along the canal.
You wouldn’t believe it, but this kid does an amazing impression of Louis Armstrong, which is what he was doing as I was snapping pictures all down the river.
It really is water off a duck’s back:
Fun fact #3: A couple years ago I got super excited because I was moving and thought I’d found a place to rent in a really nice area of London. When I got there, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Then I realized I couldn’t find it because it wasn’t actually a house … it was a boat in what must have been the only not-nice part in that area. The idiot guy renting the room failed to mention he was actually renting a room on a BOAT, not a house, and the “front yard” was actually just the crappy piece of land the boat was docked to. I was so angry I didn’t even go view the room.
The area looked nothing like this.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. Only one more day until my Copenhagen trip!!
