Today I did a little walk to the Aveda salon. It was an emergency given that the humid-cool-wet weather is doing a number on my hair. Do not even bring a straightener or a hair dryer because it WILL rain at some point during the day and all that effort will have been wasted. Along my walk, I did my usual checking-out old churches. Though they are heathen Protestants here (A fact I learned quickly when I asked whether anyone could attend mass at Westminster Abbey. A very intimidating guy in a robe yelled at me and said, "Mass???? We are not Catholics, it's called Services." Oh crap, I thought you Protestants were supposed to be mellow.), I still like their churches. Here is a cool sort-of-church, it is the Greyfriars Garden, which is located in a former Wren church yard.
I then wandered over to pretty much what my personal heaven must be like (assuming heaven isn't actually a ski-resort or a Four Seasons), Borough Market. The options for lunch are, of course, staggering. The duck sandwich smelled divine, and all the fresh shellfish, fish currys, and pork sandwiches were tempting, I almost went with the Thai dish in the picture that follows on the right. I ended up choosing the chorizo on sourdough with roasted red peppers and rocket (aka. arugula), because I am a sucker for a sausage - keep your comments to yourselves people.
Chorizo sando and Thai fish something-or-other, I'd be fat if I hadn't walked 9 miles around the freakin city getting lost this morning.
To do next week:
- Attend a Serpentine Running Club event of some sort, or at least join the club. I need to make some friends here for sure!
