For the first time since I set foot on British soil, I took it easy. I had a bit of a lie-in (if getting up at 8:45 is lying-in) and took my time getting around. I was going to meander around here today but it was raining and I didn't feel like braving the elements right away. Around 11:00 it cleared up and I decided that I was going to hit a couple of the shops I didn't get to yesterday. I went to a shop called Forbidden Planet which is a geeks dream! I also went to Paperchase which is one of my favourite brands of paper goods and the like. I didn't have to change trains, I didn't have to carry 9,000 pounds of food back on the tube and I was home at a decent hour. I still walked a ways, but after yesterday it was nothing!
Later in the afternoon I decided to make myself a cream tea. For those of you who are not familiar with a cream tea, it's basically afternoon tea with scones, jam and clotted cream. I had picked up all of the ingredients at Sainsbury's yesterday so I decided to treat myself. Clotted cream is something you just can't get in the states unless you get shelf stable clotted cream at a British Imports store. It's like an unsalted creamy butter for lack of a better description. Totally decadent!
Now I want to figure out what to do Friday (tomorrow I'm going out to Chris's house for his birthday). I'll be coming into London at probably 10:00am and I'll already be in central London so I want to see where I should go from there.
