Food, Glorious Food!

I have four stolen (borrowed) pictures for today. I'm not in the mood to ask someone to borrow their camera cord (yes, I have been without one this whole time). So I'm going to use my stalker skills and mooch from Google images to find pictures that are pretty much the same as the ones I took.

We started the morning taking a train to Hampton Court. Which, like lots of other places we visit, was reminiscent of Disneyland. What made it worth the while? Stellar gardens.

Carly and I took a little trip to Oxford Street... When we'd had our fill of shopping and Ben's we headed off to Brixton in search of the elusive Franco Manca pizza restaurant.  We had trouble finding it at first, which normally wouldn't be a problem, but it was 20 minutes to closing. After getting directions from a nicest/sketchiest dude (beer can in paper bag, leaning nonchalantly against the liquor store) we found it. It was so good. And it was like £5 for a whole pizza... unheard of.

 Before we went to see  Oliver! We popped into Waterstone's. I kind of fell in love with this children's book.
They had a San Francisco one as well. I'm tempted, not gonna lie. 

We booked it to Oliver! and made it just on time. I'm pretty sure it's one of my favorite plays that I've seen since I've been here. Maybe even my favorite. Can it really get any more fun than children singing and dancing about food? I say no.

  1. Hm I'll definitely try to scope out that pizza place! And I know what you're talking about with that London book. The SF one is really cute! And it sounds like you're making your rounds at the West End. What other shows do you recommend?
