From Punk Tees to Posh Teas
Then - we jumped into a black cab (another experience ticked off the list) and headed for the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel for Afternoon Tea (courtesy of the 'experience' voucher Kate & Todd gave us as an engagement gift).
Afternoon tea was very posh. The menu was as follows:
- an assortment of 5 finger sandwiches including: curried chicken, smoked salmon, egg & watercress, roast beef, cucumber & crab.
- 2 varieities of scones (wholemeal & poppyseed), served with cream, rhubarb compote, lime & lemon curd, and raspberry jam.
- 5 mini cakes / desserts... which i cannot actually name. They were all dellicious though!
- We chose English Breakfast and Lady Grey teas.
It was a great way to spend the afternoon in London (so many thanks to Kate & Todd). We didnt need dinner afterwards.. and probably also shouldnt have eaten lunch beforehand.
Last night we went next door to the local pub and met up with Emily Parker for some drinks. It was great to see an old friend on the other side of the world. The girls sipped on their drinks inside while the boys got rowdy with some Americans outside. When we got home, Adam and Jarrod put on a bit of a dance performance in the kitchen for us. Some things never change no matter which side of the world you are on!
This morning we leave London (pies, pints and pimms) behind and say 'hola' to Barcelona (and sangria and tapas). Is it wrong that we associate food with each destination in this journey??
London - you've been good to us. Farewell until next time. xo
