Tube sign leading to Mecca (Harrods)

We stayed a total of 9 days in London. Two to recover from our jet lag...it's a LONG way from australia and then on the way back after Greece, Venice and Paris. A lovely walk along The Thames on a saturday morning with various cafe's, pubs and street performers to  stop at along the way is a lovely way to spend some time. If it's not the colourful pubs with live flowers hanging all over the outside of them, big ben, the tower of london tour, Dans le Noir / Dinner in the dark (which is a very cool thing to do by the way) a great curry (if you are careful and ask around - remember a full house with locals in it is a good sign anywhere in the world) that's appealing then it's London Bridge, A cruise along The Thames, souvenier hunting, buck house (buckingham palace), lovely parks, great bars, great restaurants everywhere and of course shopping Mecca.

.....HARRODS. :) The food hall in Harrods is something to experience.Our most gorgeous Dim Sum ever was at the Harrods Food Hall Dim Sum bar, i HIGHLY recommend the Jasmin tea.................you'll see why when you order. It might actually be in my photo's, i can't remember. London is and exciting, vibrant and a fantastic place. There was an  awesome place we went on The Thames to eat called Strada (i think) the food was fantastic i remember that much. I was dangerously close to licking the plate. :)

I understand why our best man has been there for 6 years now and has no intention of leaving at this point. Thousands and thousands of young aussies live in London and i know why. :)
