Loving London

May 2, 2008

We are having a lovely time here in London for a few days.  We had a 4 day weekend in France this weekend so we came to London for a short couple’s getaway.

My eating has not been really dieting, but not too outrageous and we’ve walked a ton. Today we hit one of the top “trendy” restaurants in town for lunch — Saint John.  We were quite disappointed, which is really saying a lot because we are not strangers to upper-end eating nor to star chefs, but this place did not live up to it’s reputation at all.  Luckily such disappointment did not also break the caloric bank – both my starter and main courses were very light (although not very interesting or flavorful) and dessert was shared w my DH.

I really enjoy this city – it’s so close I should make it a point to come more often.  It gives me an ‘at home’ feeling without the airfare or jetlag of a trip to the States.  And for the time being a trip here for us is really affordable (even though the city is fiendishly expensive) because we have a friend who has an apartment here & he lets us use it free.  Someday I imagine he’ll either give up the apartment or live here himself, but for the time being it’s wonderful.
