The Princess Garden; Farewell London Marriott

Another fabulous referral from the concierge, and another fine meal of chicken with mango, won ton soup, eggplant, pot stickers, this time bearing no relation to mother’s kishka, and ending with toffee covered lichees. We are about eaten out!!! Diet has not existed for ten days, and there will be a price to be paid.

This being a retro entry, I can say that our last full day in London was very quiet and restful, as we prepare for a departure at about 11:20 AM tomorrow.

Lin has nearly outdone the original Spitfire flight, and we have many special memories and a lot of reading material.

Still, in retro, and now covering our last meal, on Saturday, February 11, 2006 at the Marriott’s Cobalt restaurant: fish and chips for Lin and a sampler of Caesar salad, Beef salad and Chicken Korma, followed by a glass of Australian late harvest Muscat. Enough to make one wobble. So what do we find but Piper Heidsieck Brut Champagne and strawberries, a gift from Miranda and Marriott. We finished our Stilton cheese, Gouda cheese and grapes while watching the pairs figure skating for the Winter Olympics. I’m watching Nebraska vs Texas basketball, and hoping that UCLA may follow.
