This post is way later than expected, but better late than never right? I am now settled in Norwich, a quaint city with a plethora of crumbling churches and pubs. When I first arrived, the boy and I stayed a few days in London to be American tourists. It was great fun and the weather was fantastic due to a heat wave. Here I'll post a few highlights.
One of my favorite things in London we saw were the blue plaques placed here and there on buildings listing where persons of interest lived and a little blurb about them. I love thinking that we are walking the same paths and occupying the same buildings as people I've read about in my beloved historical fiction novels. I've posted a couple of examples here:
Another thing to love about London (and Norwich)...the tea of course. Being a coffee devotee I didn't expect to make a total switch, but I have. The tea here tastes a thousand times better than the stuff at home. I also love that people actually sit down and take time out of their busy days to enjoy it. Jesse and I went to a little cafe for "cream tea" which is tea with a side of scones with jam and clotted cream. I'd always wondered what clotted cream was and now I can say it is magic. A cross between sweet cream butter and whipped cream. Fantastic. Here I am enjoying a nice cup of tea at said cafe:
