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.
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.
