Since I got in at night and it was bank holiday weekend, Londoners were out in droves and Georges decided to test my limits by taking me to Soho and Boys Town (the gay district) for dinner and a night out.
The full day I had there happened to be a Saturday so Georges roommates Michael and Travis planned a night of grilling which brought us to the open air markets to get supplies. That was a blast in itself. We even brought their Manchester Terriers Tank and Diesel (both female and mother and daughter). At the market we ate fruits and marzipan and crackling pork sandwiches and sausage, etc.
That night we had a lovely grilled dinner of pork chops, egg plant, lamb, cheeses and wine. Once dinner was over we settled down to torturing ourselves by watching the Eurovision finals. It was so funny to watch how angry these Brits got over how biased the competition was and how pathetically hated the Brits were in the contest, coming in a tie for last place. It was great to watch each country vote for their counterpart country like Bosnia voting for Croatia, etc.
All in all, it was a wonderful time and a great closer to a long trip. Thanks for reading.
