I took a thirty minute stroll through Hyde Park this afternoon. Here is the "beach" in Hyde Park...being a California gal, I could only shake my head in disbelief when I saw these flimsy lawn chairs under grey overcast London sky... If I were Nelson from the Simpsons, I'd point at these ultra pale Londoners and be like, Haha!
Rugby at Hyde Park... British men are kinda, meh, I am putting this picture here as filler...
I am temporarily obsessed with grilled fish in London. I had grilled john dory, sea bass, and now dover sole, in the span of three days here. The John Dory was the best, maybe I'll go back tomorrow and get it again, so tender and slightly charred and slightly salted.
The mussels were good too, though in this picture they look slightly demented, esp the one on the lower right. They are smaller than the American variety, very tender, not chewey, and the white wine sauce was divine!
It's almost 9:30pm and yet it's still fairly bright outside. This is outside my hotel, without any street light. The days are long here, it gets bright at 5am, and only gets completely dark at around 10pmish.
Ok, hope to be home soon, though I may take a flight to Hong Kong on Friday instead... we'll see.
