London Weekend

So last time, I told you I was in London for the weekend, visiting Graham, Alex's brother. We had a terrific time: meeting some of Graham's friends, searching for flats (apartments, not shoes, sadly) and squeezing in a little time for sight-seeing.

I really enjoy sight-seeing in London. Because we are often there to visit family, it can be easy to skip, but Alex is totally happy to join me in making a point to see at least one touristy thing while we're across the Atlantic.

This time, we did two (!) touristy things, the first of which was a visit to the Borough Market - a favorite of ours.

Borough Market is London's oldest food market. It has its beginnings in Roman times and has occupied its current location for over 250 years.

Cheese and chocolate - does one really need anything else? :)

It's a wonderful place to browse and discover,

with vendors who are nothing if not modest. ;)

And it's an even better place to eat lunch - specifically a greasy lunch of fish and chips! If you like that sort of thing...

I'll write about the second touristy thing next time.


  1. Oooh! Love the cheese and chocolate shots...and you're right, who needs anything else?
