Day 12 Thursday, September 19th London
Went back to Black Vanilla today for more euphoria via their gelato. I took these adorable pictures of my boyfriend as he was sitting in the window people watching
and this one, while we were walking to the VodaPhone store
We left Bill’s and went to meet our couch surfing host, Sally, who lives on a boat. Look how cute her boat is!
She had little vignettes like this in every nook and cranny
This is our sleeping nest
We walked through an absolutely beautiful park that had a little secret garden in the middle
And then we had dinner at The Yellow House. Everything is freshly made in house. Kris’ pizza was insane and our dessert was so delicious – fudgy brownie with home made white chocolate ice cream on top.
Afterwards we went back and hung out on the boat with Sally and her neighbor, Dave. Dave was awesome. He totally “got” us. He used to work for Exon and made tons of money and traveled the world, but soon realized that he was just another robot, totally expendable and meaningless. He quit, bought a boat, went back to school and did lots of traveling. He has a house in Brighton and invited us there on our way back through England.
It was such a fun scene on the boat – crammed in this tiny space, drinking wine, listening to Billie Holiday on the record player, talking about world travels and the meaning of life.
