We slept wonderfully. I was practically falling asleep in the big, long (and narrow) tub, so I slept very well, awakening at 8 AM. We tuned in BBC 1 and caught the news… organic vegetables are very big… almost 5 minutes of news on aubergines without chemicals…. And on to cooking shows which sure beats Martha Stewart.
We enjoyed a room service scrambled egg and Scottish salmon, tea from home (Good Earth),
and while Lin rested, I posted at the end of the block and went on to the post office, coming across a silver Ferrari
and passing the embassy flags. I took a roundabout path, heading back to Oxford Street and the multitudes. Reminds me of Chicago’s State Street.
I found a Starbucks and brought back a cappuccino vente and a couple of chicken mango wraps, passing the American embassy, the statue of Dwight Eisenhower, a home with a marker, where he stayed during WW II. In the same block of houses was a plaque for Sir Frederick Handley-Page, aircraft designer of the 30’s and 40’s (Halifax bomber.)
